Fountayne Edition’s Living Composers Series is informed by the same philosophy that drives much of Fountayne Editions: there is important music which has not found a place in the repertoire.

As is well known, first performances of the works of contemporary composers are rare. Subsequent performances are even harder to find and works, which enjoy great success at their premieres, can fall into obscurity. This series gives players the chance to explore these neglected but valuable works.

The Living Composers Series presents the works of living composers in accessible and authoritative editions. Complete collaboration between the composer and the editor ensures these editions represent the most accurate text possible.
