Balanced Mind Curriculum Conference

We are thrilled to announce that Nicolas Repetto's Chicharra will be featured in the 2020 Balanced Mind Curriculum Conference occurring next Tuesday, November 3rd.

Chicharra, or cricket, was born out of a love for syncopated, rhythmic music that makes one move and dance. This special piece uses special effects like glissandi in the cello section and the Chicharra technique in the violins —imitating the music of a cricket!

The BMCC, a professional development day for teachers of art, dance, music, and theater in the Long Island, NY area, is going virtual this year with digital booklets provided by J.W. Pepper. Click the link below for more information.

Yo-Yo Ma Performing Casals' Cant del Ocells (Song of the Birds)

This short clip of Yo-Yo Ma performing Pablo Casals' "Cant del Ocells"(Song of the Birds) gives us chills! Spanish cellist Casals always started his concerts with this hauntingly beautiful piece since his exile from his native country. 49 years ago he played this piece at the United Nations.

This Friday, Oct 23rd, Yo-Yo Ma will be performing a live concert, "A New Equilibrium," at the IDAGIO Global Concert Hall to honor the United Nations' 75th anniversary. "We’re going to ask what a peaceful, sustainable world looks like 75 years after the UN’s creation."

Cant del Ocells can be found in The Casals Legacy, a collection of 10 solo pieces from Pablo Casals' repertoire for cello with piano accompaniment.

William Grant Still: Darker America with ROCO

William Grant Still, often referred to as the "Dean of Afro-American Composers," wrote tone poem "Darker America" to express “the triumph of a people over their sorrows through fervent prayer." Making space for himself as a black modernist, Still premiered this synergy of symphonic and jazz languages in 1924, and was met with skepticism as opposed to the acclaim his white counterparts received.

In this triumphant work, the exploration of struggle and transformation rises and falls the strings, a theme of sorrow echoes from the English horn, and hope extend forth from the brass, accompanied by strings and woodwinds.

Just as relevant almost 100 years later, please enjoy "Darker America" as performed by ROCO and led by Christopher Rountree, conductor.

Looking at this vintage photo of the Carl Fischer Concert Hall (circa 1940s-1950s) seems reminiscent of current day. But although the lights have been dimmed on large-scale gatherings such as concerts and recitals, music continues to be a driving force for students and educators who continue to strive for musical excellence. Music is still alive in virtual classrooms, spatially distanced ensembles, and in the daily practice musicians of all ages continue to commit themselves to.

Mathew Schick - CVHS Instrumental Music Dealing with Distance Learning

Today we'd like to applaud Mathew Schick, Music Director at Crescenta Valley High School for his hard work and determination to ensure his students receive the music education that they deserve. This wonderful video is a testament to his resilience and love for his students. Being a music educator during this time is a difficult reality and we'd like to extend our gratitude towards teachers who are spending extra hours, putting in extra effort, and going the extra mile to make things work in their virtual or spatially distanced classrooms. Teachers such as Mr. Schick make a difference in their students' lives and their music classrooms provide comfort, stability, and community in otherwise uncertain times.

It’s “Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day”, a day to celebrate odd, rare, experimental and well, uncommon instruments.

Nicknamed "Big Carl," this giant tuba was once displayed in the window of the Carl Fischer store in downtown New York.
Its twin “La Prodigieuse” was on hand at the grand opening of a new store in Boston in 1911. Click each photo to fully appreciate its size.

The Titanic tuba is PERFECTLY-"TUNED". Here is its melodious FULL range. The missing 13th octave.
I am deeply disappointed to find errata in CM9621 (the new SA voicing). On November 28, 2018, I reached out noting that there were errors both in text and pronunciation in CM9044 (the original TB voicing). I was told that it was being looked into to be fixed in future printings. The text error seems to be fixed, but the pronunciation information error remains. ***Initial Rs and all RRs in all dialects and accents of Portuguese are pronounced as an aspiration (like "H" in English).*** I am disappointed that, even in light of my reaching out on several occasions, a thorough proofreading by someone familiar with the language was not included in the editing process. This makes me deeply concerned about the accuracy of any other non-English publications by Carl Fischer.
What the heck is going on with www.carlfischer.com?
Will you please post when your site is back up?
On Sunday at 6pm, I will give a lecture - recital at Jacksonville University on Howard Hanson's "Symphonic Rhapsody" which I discovered in manuscript in 2016. Carl Fischer Music subsequently published my edition of the work in 2017. My event will be live streamed to Hanson's hometown of Wahoo, Nebraska and to the Eastman School of Music and to the University of the Pacific. The date is significant: it's the 100th anniversary of the work's first performance given by the composer, October 27, 1919, College of the Pacific, San Jose, California.
Please respond to my messages regarding creating my account on your website. Despite multiple attempts, I am not receiving the confirmation email to move forward with downloading the MP3’s included with the book (Tales of Land and Sea). I have also messaged Brilee music with no response. I have checked my junk and spam folders. Thank you.
Found this in an old box. Just one sheet front and back. No. 9, 10, 11 and 12. Dated 1844. For violins. Can you tell me anymore about this and if you would like to have this sheet. It's in bad shape. My grandfather was a fiddler and also played cornet, banjo, guitar. Thank you in advance for any information you can give me.
Larry Clarkhas apologized for his use of a female Japanese pseudonym while working with CF. Will Carl Fischer Music also apologize for being complicit with this? Finish the work that was sloppily done to change the credit line back to Clark (it is still incorrect on every preview on JW Pepper) Or make efforts to amend the mistake by lifting up women and people of color??
Are the IT people still working on both sites? (Carl Fischer and Brilee). We are having a really difficult time getting the pages to load.
Hi, Is anyone else having a service issue for this (and Brilee) website? We keep getting a Server Error message when trying to shop for music.
I know it's a long shot, but do you know what this piece is? I only have this page left. It was purchased in the early 90s.
Thanks for publishing The First complete Weissenborn. I'm sorry it wasn't published as spiral bound.
