After the successful 2018 edition of the Call for Piano Music, RMN Classical has now opened the applications for the 2019 - Call for Piano Works to discover and develop new composers and performers that would otherwise remain under the radar as well as promote and support the international growth of the more established ones.

If you are a composer or performer and own a piano recording of your performance or of a work composed by you, this may be a good opportunity to gain exposure.

The Call for Piano Works 2019 is open to any composer and performer, regardless of age or country of residency. The work(s) submitted are intended to be of Contemporary and Classical music and for piano solo, piano duo or four (or more?) hands. Live, Studio and VST/Computer generated tracks are all accepted.

Works written for Duo, Trio, chamber music, etc, or those that include voice or electronics won’t be accepted. Tracks previously released or published can be submitted as well but the composers/performers should be sure to have publishing or distribution rights or permission to release the track in case of selection.

There are no restrictions regarding neither the duration – we recommend to preferably submit short and medium length tracks – nor the number of recordings that each applicant can submit.

The selected works will be featured in a top quality release produced by RMN Classical, released worldwide through RMN Music, and distributed on a high-quality edition on various platforms around the world (including but not limited to iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora and many more). The prize for the selected winners will also include high-quality design of the cover artwork, chart registration in the USA, the UK, and Canada, licensing and copyright clearance and the composers will retain 100% of the copyright. Additionally, there will be the opportunity for synchronisation and licensing (tv and media).

The cut-off-date will be May 26, 2019, and the application fee will be divided into discounted Early Bird (ending April 28, 2019) and Full Price (ending May 26, 2019).

Each applicant/composer will have the opportunity to submit her/his works via the Application Form, and the submission should include the link to the recording(s) in mp3, the score(s), notes about the composition(s), about the composer, and about the performer(s).
