Classical Music Radio Broadcast Request Promotes Women Composers - Composer Amy BeachThe International Alliance for Women in Music and other musical advocacy groups encourage classical music lovers to request the music of notable women in music. Each month different composers are chosen. 
More information below: 
To participate in promoting the broadcast of women's compositions, please telephone or e-mail local and/or Internet radio stations during Aug. 5-11, 2018, requesting that they play music composed by AMY BEACH.

As usual, the selection, which is different every week, has been made by Ursula Rempel. The selections, she explains, "are based on a combination of factors: availability of CDs, geography/nationality, accessibility/appeal of the music for general audiences, and a concern to feature both historical and contemporary women composers." 

Feel free to copy and modify this to suit yourselves:

New Music Album Release - Coro del Mundo
CORO DEL MUNDO Compilation With its blend of religious and cultural influences, CORO DEL MUNDO is proof that different faiths and beliefs can sit together comfortably at the same musical table. Tracks range from sacred to secular, and from delicate to aggressive, while the surprising cohesiveness of the composers’ work is astonishingly beautiful. Recorded in Cuba, Schola Cantorum Coralina and Vocal Luna contribute exquisite vocals to these recordings.

New Music Release Electronica Uzun Havalar by Anadol

New Music Release Uzun Havalar by Anadol

Anadol's third album, Uzun Havalar, recorded on tape by Kinship Records, is now available online and cassette format. Uzun Havalar by AnadolRecorded and mixed in 2015 the album is built around three long synth tracks referring to the improvised unmetric folk songs “uzunhava” in middle eastern music.  You can hear drummers laughing and playing guitars, composers howling, screaming, record collectors playing synths, actors mumbling and tuning in to the geography of Anadol's synth compositions. 

Anadol is a traditional continuation of lone synth experimentalists like Bruce Haack and The Space Lady with their childlike curiosity for electronic sounds, pushing the boundaries of minimal equipment.
Composed, performed, recorded, produced and mixed by Anadol at Tempelhof Studios 2015. Mastering by Martin Bartscher.
