Stewart Wallace and Andrew Norman Join the Schott Roster of Composers

Congratulations to American composers Stewart Wallace and Andrew Norman, who have just signed onto the Schott Music roster. Schott VP of Composers and Repertoire Norman Ryan talked about these two composers and their contributions to American music in a recent press release:
Our recent signings mark a continuation of Schott's commitment to a fresh start in America recognizing great composing talent at various stages of development and designing flexible publishing relationships that encourage and emphasize creative partnerships. Launched in 2005 when Schott Music Corporation established an active music publishing operation in New York, this commitment to developing, promoting and supporting the very best composing talent is ongoing and we look forward to broadening these initiatives further. Stewart Wallace is a seasoned composer of great works for the lyric and concert stage and we are thrilled to welcome him to Schott at this momentous point in his career with the impending world premiere of The Bonesetter's Daughter at San Francisco Opera. Andrew Norman is an emerging artist who is fast becoming recognized as one of our great young American composers. We are excited to be working with him as he continues to develop his unique voice.
I've also embedded the latest issue of Schott Aktuell, with information on world premieres, new sheet music, and composers published by Schott Music:



(Thanks, James!)
