PARMA’s latest Featured Recording Opportunity

Deadline: 28 May 2021


PARMA Recordings is proud to present a Featured Recording Opportunity with the Sirius Quartet, “a fine, adaptable ensemble, and contemporary music specialists.” (Gramophone Magazine)

Projects selected and approved by the A&R panel will be performed by Sirius Quartet’s world-class musicians: Fung Chern Hwei (violin), Gregor Huebner (violin), Ron Lawrence (viola) and Jeremy Harman (cello), with the “versatility and flair” lauded by the New York Times.

In a PARMA first, the resulting recordings will be presented as a visual album. While we’re no strangers to collaborating on compelling video content accompanying and drawing further attention to definitive studio recordings (see examples below), we have planned something new for this project: an entire, artfully-crafted, visual experience to be released as a complementary product to the resulting audio album.

Examples of PARMA’s recent video work:

Hilary Tann – …And The Snow Did Lie
Bringing Dan Brown’s WILD SYMPHONY To Life
Stuart Weber – Anniversary Waltz
Michael Evans Discusses The Adventures Of Florian

Sirius Quartet combines exhilarating repertoire with unequalled fire. These conservatory-trained performer-composers shine with precision, soul, and raw energy, championing a forward-thinking, genre-defying approach.

The fruits of previous recording opportunities with the Sirius Quartet can be heard on the Navona releases PLAYING ON THE EDGE and PLAYING ON THE EDGE 2. More about past recording opportunities with other ensembles and soloists can be found here:
