    Masterworks 12 -release imminent (?)

    I got an e-mail just now from ERM Media to let me know that Masterworks 12 (which I'm on) is nearly ready to be released.

    They say they're looking at a release date in late March to early April, so I'm betting on it coming out in May or June.

    Sorry about the sarcasm, but the thing was supposed to come out in January--of last year!!!

    Small update, if you'll indulge me...

    I've just been to their website, where they have announced a release date of April 15.

    And this one's going to be a 4 CD set!

    If there was an announcement about this I totally missed it, but it appears that they are taking orders for it here: http://www.numusicdirect.com/MW12.html

    But more to the point, you can hear a brief excerpt from my piece "The Starry Messenger" here: http://www.numusicdirect.com/files/Starry.mp3 WOW!

    One last update and I promise I'll shut up about it.

    I just got an e-mail from ERM Media that Masterworks 12 is indeed released, finally! Yay!

    Hey Dan!

    Congrats on Vol 12 being released. I'll get it so I can hear your piece. I've got pieces on 3 volumes and none were ever released "on-time" However, all were eventually released.

    I think ERM gets ahead on themselves then gets bogged down in details. However, my dealings with them have always gone well.

    Take care and watch out for tornadoes!

    Congratulations,

    Your piece sits very well in this collection. I don't know how to describe Masterworks, even in french, but I like the feeling I get from this collection and plan to buy some Cd's soon.

    Just a quick question: how exactly is the music chosen for these disks? Can one simply submit music/scores? or are they chosen from existing concert repertoire?

    There's a call for submissions that goes out every few months. I suggest you visit their site at http://www.numusic.org/index.php and get on their e-mail list.
