Featured Recording Opportunities

Throughout the year, PARMA leads initiatives to curate and promote new music from a wide variety of today’s composers for recording or performance with top ensembles. Previously accepted scores have been recorded and released on Navona Records and performed across the globe, including concerts in Russia, Croatia, Austria, the Czech Republic, and the United States.

Featured Recording Opportunity with the Sirius Quartet

PARMA Recordings is proud to present a Featured Recording Opportunity with the Sirius Quartet, “a fine, adaptable ensemble, and contemporary music specialists.” (Gramophone Magazine)

Projects selected and approved by the A&R panel will be performed by Sirius Quartet’s world-class musicians: Fung Chern Hwei (violin), Gregor Huebner (violin), Ron Lawrence (viola) and Jeremy Harman (cello), with the “versatility and flair” lauded by the New York Times.

Putting Notes In Motion

In a PARMA first, the resulting recordings will be presented as a visual album. While we are no strangers to collaborating on compelling video content accompanying and drawing further attention to definitive studio recordings (see examples below), we have planned something new for this project: an entire, artfully-crafted, visual experience to be released as a complementary product to the resulting audio album.

Examples of PARMA’s recent video work:

Hilary Tann – …And The Snow Did Lie

Bringing Dan Brown’s WILD SYMPHONY To Life

Stuart Weber – Anniversary Waltz

Michael Evans Discusses The Adventures Of Florian

Internationally Acclaimed Veterans of Contemporary Music

Sirius Quartet – Jeremy Harman, cello | Gregor Huebner, violin | Ron Lawrence, viola | Fung Chern Hwei, violin

Sirius Quartet combines exhilarating repertoire with unequalled fire. These conservatory-trained performer-composers shine with precision, soul, and raw energy, championing a forward-thinking, genre-defying approach.

The fruits of previous recording opportunities with the Sirius Quartet can be heard on the Navona releases PLAYING ON THE EDGE and PLAYING ON THE EDGE 2.
