Chimera (CAS125) by Eric B. Davis

Here at Carl Fischer, we are proud to publish music that helps educators and students shine.✨ We were ecstatic to receive the following note from orchestra director Marjorie Spagnuolo from Massapequa, NY. Here's what she had to say about Eric B. Davis' "Chimera":

Dear Carl Fischer,

My students and I are having a wonderful time working on Chimera. This piece is exactly what we needed this year! There is something interesting and challenging in all parts. Chimera has driving rhythms that are unified, call and response sections and really fun parts that are woven around each other. Students are excited to play out! My bass players are so happy to have a juicy bass line. Eric Davis does a wonderful job incorporating fingerings that make sense. The students and I love how his passages re-enforce shifting and confidence in positions. I'm a fan of dotted rhythms and syncopation, both of which are utilized in this work. Chimera incorporates plenty of teachable topics. I’m looking forward to more works by this composer.

Thank you for supporting modern educational composers.

Sincerely,

Marjorie Spagnuolo

It is with a heavy heart that Carl Fischer Music receives the news of composer Michael Boo's passing. Michael was very active within the band community and beloved by all who met him. He was not only a prolific composer, but also a veteran percussionist, author, staff writer for Drum Corps International, and Composer-in-Residence for both the Windiana Professional Concert Band and the Confucius Institute of Valpraiso University. A recent addition to the Carl Fischer roster, we regret not having more time to work with him, while also deeply valuing the time we spent together creating enriching music for budding musicians. He will be dearly missed. Our most heartfelt condolences go out to his loved ones during this difficult time. Michael's presence — his optimism, his humor, his love for his friends — will forever be felt through his music and the positive effect it has had on musicians across the world.

I sent an email but just in case you don't receive it, here's a copy... Perhaps you have already been made aware and was notified that there are some errors printed in The Guitar Grimoire: Scales & Modes book. At the onset of each chapter, there is a keyboard pattern correlating with the Mode generation charts( which is the main reference section of the books). For example: the C Major scales contain no sharps or flats but your book has the C Major scale listed as follows: C, Bb, Ab, G, F, Eb, Db. Those charts can be found on pages 20, 42, 116, 120, 140, 144, & 149(I may have overlooked a page or two). Funny thing is that I have several of the books from this series and I’ve owned this particular book for 20+ years and I have never noticed before. I attached a picture from the book showing what exactly I’m referring to. I’m a big fan of your books and I just wanted to let you guys know about it.
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.
