I am continuing a negotiation with Jenny Oaks Baker for her new Violin book. Much of it is entangled with works of national publishers who are not much interested in cooperating with us. With pieces from this volume, and from her Silver Screen collection, we have more than enough secured for a full album. We will have the result on the market by early June.
Jenny’s product is designed for advanced violin. Jenny edits the violin parts carefully to reflect her fingering and expression. It provides useful challenge for college level players. Arrangers include Kurt Bestor, Sam Cardon, Lex de Azevedo, K. Newell Dayley, and others.
In the meantime, our 2010 Christmas choral market is just beginning. I have spent the last two days editing new Christmas works for print. One other has already been delivered from the printer. We have many others in development now. Our regular deadline for receiving submissions is mid April with all works recorded and in print by the end of May.
The April ChoralClub begins the Christmas releases.
