The Canadian Piano Left Hand Commissioning Project - crowdfunding seven new works by Canadian composers

Adam Scime - a wonderful bassist, pianist and composer - broke his right hand, and had to stop playing bass while it heals. But Adam is turning lemons into an exquisite fountain of lemonade! He wants to commission seven Canadian composers - including Alex Eddington - to write new left-hand piano pieces for him to premiere this May.

Alliance for Canadian New Music Projects

I was pleased to have 6 of my pieces included in the latest edition of the Alliance for Canadian New Music Projects syllabus. Student musicians choose pieces from this all-Canadian, 20th- and 21st-century syllabus repertoire to compete in Contemporary Showcase.

ACNMP is launching each new syllabus composer with an interview on their webpage.

Scores for the six pieces are all available through the Canadian Music Centre or from the composer.

  • So Joab blew a trumpet (solo speaking trumpet)

  • Scintillator (solo soprano, text by email spam)

  • Three Conjoined Trifles (bassoon and piano)

  • Watershed (two violins, one beginner and one advanced)

  • Humoresque (viola and piano)

  • Dusty Miller March (brass quintet)
