Anthony Iannaccone's ARIA CONCERTANTE No. 1 for Cello and Piano now available!
Available on Albany Records for many years, Anthony Iannaccone's ARIA CONCERTANTE NO. 1 is now in print for the first time. This work and its companion ARIA CONCERTANTE NO. 2 were commissioned by Jerome Jelinek and Joseph Gurt, whose Albany recording isnow also available on YouTube. Plaintive yet sensual, ARIA CONCERTANTE NO. 1 was the Winner of the Missouri Contemporary Music Competition, a national award with a panel of judges led by Aaron Copland. The 11-minute work is aptly described by its title, beautifully rich with contemporary cantabile writing, as well as brilliant effects and technical passages.

PARTITA FOR PIANO by Anthony Iannaccone
While neo-baroque in overall concept, Anthony Iannaccone’s PARTITA FOR PIANO sizzles and
sparkles with fiery contemporary language; the suite uses earlier dance rhythms as a scaffold for
the youthful explorations of a 24-year-old embarking on the richly creative career that has since
followed. The partita’s movements are studies in form as well as rhythm and all-interval pitch sets,
while sounding as an elegant Prelude, Sarabande, Burlesca, and Gigue.
The American Record Guide has written:
“Partita for Piano is an accomplished essay in the neobaroque. Its rhythms are supple, its keyboard
writing clean. Its harmonies are piquant – frequently familiar enough, in all truth, but ever escaping the
cliché, and often surprising in its ingenious avoidance of the obvious. The second movement, Sarabande,
a delicate combination of luminous grace and tremulous sensibility, is a good example of this, and of
the Partita at its best. Joseph Gurt’s performance is first-class.”

THREE LITTLE WALTZES for Flute and Clarinet now available separately
One of Daniel Dorff's charming yet challenging works for Flute and Clarinet, THREE LITTLE WALTZES was originally published in the collection OLD NEW BORROWED BLUE (494-02688) but wasn't available separately until now. Tenuto Publications has released the work separately for the first time, in an edition that includes two copies of the shared score. The work has been recorded by Leonard Garrison and Shannon Scott on Albany Records and can be heard on YouTube.
May 2015
Dorff's art songs on Japanese texts have been premiered from prestigious Suntory Hall in Tokyo to a dock floating on the banks of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia. The poems by Dorff's family and the composer himself are inspired by love of family, love of flying, and love of snow.

Continuing our series of 9x12 study scores of orchestra music by Anthony Iannaccone, Tenuto introduces convenient publications, large enough to conduct from, of ESCAPE and FROM TIME TO TIME (FANTASIAS ON TWO APPALACHIAN FOLKSONGS). Both works are recorded on Albany Records.












April 2013
Now available in convenient 9x12 publications, and large enough to conduct from comfortably, Tenuto is proud to announce two exhilarating orchestra works by Anthony Iannaccone. WAITING FOR SUNRISE ON THE SOUND was a finalist in the 2001 Masterprize competition, chosen from a field of over 1000 entries. The musical narrative is inspired by the composer's childhood nightmares about boating on the Long Island Sound during storms. WEST END EXPRESS also draws from Iannaccone's youth, inspired by the subway that shuttled him between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Both works are recorded on Albany Records.
