Seeking Choir to Record/Premiere Work to be Published by ECS Publishing Group

Greetings from the Senior Editor at ECS Publishing Group. As many of you know, I am also a composer. I am seeking a mixed choir to record and/or premiere a work I composed this year. Management at ECS Publishing Group has already agreed to publish this work. However, we would all prefer not to do so without a high-quality recording in place. Because the piece has a duration of 6:30, it makes it more difficult to schedule with the choir who routinely does our demo recordings for us. Therefore, I am offering this opportunity to any first-rate choir out there who is willing to record and/or premiere this work, either with piano or chamber orchestra accompaniment. The copyright for the music currently belongs to me, possibly until a recording is in place, or at least until one is guaranteed.
 
This piece is called THE GALE. The poem is by Abraham (“Abramek”) Koplowicz, (b. 1930, Lodz, Poland, d. 1944, Auschwitz-Birkenau); the translation is by Sarah Lawson and Małgorzata Koraszewska as adapted by me. I am friends with the late poet’s half-brother, Eliezer (“Lolek”) Grynfeld, an elderly, well-known Holocaust survivor. I am honored that he has given me blanket permission in perpetuity to set Abramek’s poems to music. To the best of my knowledge, this amazing poem has never been set to music by anyone, let alone widely read. You can read the poem here.
 
I know that a lot of composers say this when they talk about their most recent work, but in this case, I really mean it. I consider this my most important composition to-date, and my most accessible one. It is not difficult to perform for the singers, nor for a chamber orchestra, but it does take a skilled pianist to perform the version with piano accompaniment only. You can view the piano/choral score here,
and listen to a synthesized version of it hereand view the full score hereand listen to a synthesized version of it here.
 
Thank you for your consideration.

One Of A Kind

Essentially written in one day in March 2013, « One Of A Kind » is an upbeat folk pop summer song about meeting someone who turns out to have special significance in one's life, and eventually becoming so close as to form a kind of unit with them.Ultimately, it's also about how every encounter, whether apparently desirable or otherwise, actually contributes to one's growth and to finding one's place in the grand scheme of things.
