Calendar of premieres for September


Premiere of the concerto for six double basses & orchestra by Oscar Bianchi: 6 db

Ever since its origins, from the Enlightenment to today, the concerto genre has never ceased to inspire the most audaciously extreme composers, whether in its form (a surprising entry by the soloist, breathtakingly liberating developments, a rhapsodic movement...) or its structure (concertos for string quartet with orchestra, concertos for orchestra...). Oscar Bianchi and his new concerto project, which will be a highlight of the upcoming Parisian season of musical creation, are undoubtedly writing a new chapter in this “tradition of innovation” - to be discovered without further delay in this exclusive interview.



We are happy to announce that the composer Juste Janulyte has signed with Editions Durand Salabert Eschig to represent her catalog and publish her upcoming works. It is a very special honor for our publishing house and, through it, for the entire Universal Music Publishing group, to welcome Juste among our community of composers.
