Call for Scores
Alea Publishing & Recording is an independent firm specializing in music for the bass clarinet. We offer a growing catalog of creative, artistic transcriptions and new music for bass clarinet solo & ensemble. Recently, we have begun to branch into publishing music for other instruments as well; in the past year, we have released new works for solo piano, bassoon quartet, wind sextet, and clarinet choir.
In an effort to continue this expansion of our catalog, Alea Publishing offers an open call for scores. We will consider all works received for performance, publication, and/or recording. In addition to new works, we are also interested to consider artistic transcriptions/arrangements for publication. Please scroll down on this page for complete instructions.
We are proud of the diversity of our catalog in terms of the inclusion of works by composers and arrangers from around the world, as shown by the following map. We are interested in continuing to expand this diversity, representing musical ideas from around the world.
We will accept hard-copy scores/parts sent to our mailing address below. We prefer electronic files, whether PDF or in Sibelius format. NOTE: if you use Finale, please export your file in .xml format so that we can open it in Sibelius.
Please do not send MIDI renderings of your music. If you have a recording of a live performance, we are happy to receive a copy, but prefer to read through scores ourselves rather than listening to computer renderings.
