Peabody Premiere Recordings provides students and alumni the opportunity create and release recordings of repertoire by composers whose works have been historically underrepresented in published recording catalogs. The label encourages Peabody artists to explore repertoire beyond the traditional canon and create recordings that will extend the reach of this repertoire.
All recordings are professionally recorded, engineered, and mastered by the Peabody Recording Arts Department. Recordings are archived at the Arthur Friedheim Library and made commercially available through Bandcamp, Spotify, and Apple Music.
All musical scores for repertoire recorded will be held in the Arthur Friedheim Library when possible so that performers seeking new repertoire will be able to access scores and recordings to aid in their programming decisions.
Arthur Friedheim Library invites interested applicants who may want additional resources to identify repertoire to propose to make an appointment with a research librarian.
The Label advisory board will notify awardees of their acceptance by April 30, 2022.
Awardees will receive:
The Peabody Institute retains all rights to recordings on Peabody Premieres. Any revenue from streaming and sales of recordings will be reinvested into the label to fund future releases.
All recordings must be approved by Dean Bronstein prior to release. Any recordings that are not approved for release may go through additional edits or become available for archival use only.
* The Advisory Group acknowledges that the choice of language is important and recognizes that terminology is often changing to reflect community identities. The choice of language here is guided by resources developed at Johns Hopkins University and recommended by the Peabody ADEI Steering Committee.
