CALL FOR NEW MUSIC RECORDINGS OF WORKS COMPOSED FROM 2010 UNTIL 2014 TO BE PRESENTED DURING MARATHON "VIVA 21ST CENTURY PLUS - INTERNATIONAL EDITION"
25-HOUR LIVE WPRB RADIO BROADCAST
Marvin's 10th Marathon and the 9th devoted to 21st century music has an exciting twist again this year and he is looking for your help.
If any composers or performers have recordings of works written between (and including) 2010 and 2014 please consider submitting them for possible broadcast during this exciting radio event.

For the second year in a row, the radio extravaganza “24 HOUR PLUS - VIVA 21ST CENTURY” will run for 25 hours. It will begin on Saturday, December 27th at 2:00pm (EST time) and will go nonstop live until 3:00pm on Sunday, December 28th.

Please make sure you submit only works between 2010 and 2014. The marathon will consist of music from the entire 21st century however many selections from 2000 to 2014 have already been chosen, enough to fill many marathons.
If you submit a selection from 2010 - 2014 and it is not used during the marathon it may be used on a later broadcast.
This call for recordings was designed to give composers a chance to submit their most recent works that they would be interested in being broadcast.

Feel free also to send recordings of works written earlier than 2010 for use in the future on a regular edition of "Classical Discoveries."

Only recordings on CD (no MP3’s, no downloads) will be accepted and must be received by Marvin no later than Thursday, December 18, 2014. The maximum length of each work submitted should be no more than 15 minutes.

Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho
Music & Literature: an arts magazine
Music & Literature is devoted to publishing excellent new literature on and by underrepresented artists from around the world. Each issue of Music & Literature assembles an international group of critics and writers in celebration of three featured artists whose work has yet to reach its deserved audience. Through in-depth essays, appreciations, interviews, and previously unpublished work by the featured artists, Music & Literature offers readers comprehensive coverage of each artist’s entire career while actively promoting their work to other editors and publishers around the world. Published as print editions (and soon to be offered as digital editions as well), issues of Music & Literature are designed to meet the immediate needs of modern readers while enduring and becoming permanent resources for future generations of readers, scholars, and artists.
