Sale on Johanna Beyer Editions

imgres 4
Johanna Magdalena Beyer (1889-1944) created a fascinating body of music: compositions for piano, percussion ensemble, chamber groups, choir, band, and orchestra. A one-time student of Ruth Crawford, Charles Seeger, and Henry Cowell, Beyer was an ultramodernist practioner of dissonant counterpoint, and an active member of a community that included now-better-known composers and musicians. Only one of her works was published and only one recorded during her lifetime. In recent years, thanks in part to the efforts of the Frog Peak/Johanna Beyer Project, her works are increasingly performed, recorded, studied, and written about by music scholars.

The Frog Peak/Johanna Beyer Project is a collective effort by Frog Peak composers and friends, begun in 1994, to issue annotated performance editions of the works of Johanna Beyer. All work on this project is voluntary, and each composer/editor/copyist is given considerable freedom in the choice of editorial style. We hope that these editions will stimulate performance, research, and recording of Beyer's work. All 21 editions (so far) include a facsimile of the original manuscript, and editorial notes.
