PARMA Takes Futura: The Stadelman Sessions, Part 1

Recently PARMA payed our first visit of 2015 to Boston's Futura Productions, where we rang in the new year with longtime recording partners, the New England String Quartet, to tackle two of three string quartets by composer Jeff Stadelman for a new album due later this year on Navona Records. 

We were fortunate enough to be joined in the studio by Jeff, who drove in from Buffalo, NY where he is the Chairman of the Department of Music at the University at Buffalo. The two quartets for this session, "String Quartet No. 2" and "Eastland," are as emotionally engaging as they are technically complex, and highlight the composer's unique creative voice. 

Jeff and our team will be returning to Futura this spring to record the last piece for the album, with a release tentatively targeted for late 2015. 

In the meantime, you can check out Jeff's first Navona release MESSENGER on the Navona website or via the YouTube player below. Stay tuned for more updates!
