New PARMA Artist: Juli Nunlist

Mark Nunlist has signed on with PARMA to record his mother Juli Nunlist’s “String Quartet” and to release this recording along with her “Six Chansons from Prières Dans L’Arche," “Two Symphonic Poems," and “12 Bagatelles for Clarinet" as a retrospective album of her musical work.
Juli Nunlist was a composer, published poet, and a teacher of music, specifically to choreographers and dancers. Her music was reviewed favorably in the New York Times, and her “Zwei Nachtstücke” won the 1962 National Competition for Solo Piano Composition held at Olivet College’s Festival of the Fine Arts. She was also personally commended for her work by the prolific choreographer George Balanchine.

This release will serve to present and preserve a collection of Juli Nunlist’s music for current and future generations. You can find an in-depth interview with Juli about her music through the following link; a highly-recommended read: http://www.bruceduffie.com/nunlist.html

Stay tuned for updates and music samples as we work towards this release; in the meantime, you can find a book of Juli Nunlist's poetry through this link: http://www.amazon.com/Viewpoint-Juli-Nunlist/dp/0976089637/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1447353511&sr=8-1

  1. I had the pleasure of working with Juli Nunlist on some of her compositions, and I am delighted that some of her finest works are being included on this forthcoming disc. Her music deserves to be more widely known today and to be preserved for the future as well. This new recording will serve both of those ends.
