Christopher Cerrone Awarded 2015-16 Rome Prize

Christopher Cerrone is among the winners of the prestigious Rome Prize, awarded every year to composers at the highest caliber of their craft by the American Academy in Rome. Along with scholars and artists from several other disciplines, Cerrone will join his cohort in Rome for a year of unrestricted artistic freedom, with generous support from the academy. Cerrone joins fellow PSNY Composers Anthony Cheung, Lei Liang, and Andrew Norman, all of whom have held the Rome Prize in the past ten years. 

We're also excited to announce that two of Cerrone's latest compositions are now available on PSNY: Not One Word for men's choir, commissioned and premiered by the Cornell University Glee Club in 2014, and Sonata for Violin and Piano, commissioned by the Fromm Foundation at Harvard University and premiered by Rachel Lee Priday and David Kaplan earlier this year. Check out a video of Priday and Kaplan performing this sonata below.  

Richard Carrick Awarded Fromm Foundation Commission

We've just heard some great news: Richard Carrick has been awarded a 2011 Fromm Foundation Commission to write a new string quartet for the fantastic MIVOS Quartet. A cash award and 3 years to write a quartet: what composer could ask for more? Carrick's quartet writing is thrilling enough as it is, so we're very excited to hear what he'll compose for MIVOS. In case you haven't heard, here's a short sample from 2009's "adagios" for string quartet, performed by the JACK Quartet:

Congrats Richard!
