Static was commissioned for Carl Fischer by Copland House as an addition to the national series of works from Meet the Composer Commissioning Music/ USA. The piece was also recorded from Copland House for the Koch label on an all-Currier disc. The book contains a musical symbols key, the score itself, and a page-long biography of Sebastian Currier.

Astor Piazzolla, Volume 1
A highly anticipated and well-received addition to the Carl Fischer roster, Astor Piazzolla Volume 1 is a compilation of three piano tangos written by the great Argentine tango pianist and composer, Astor Piazzolla. The three piano pieces of the first Piazzolla volume are Libertango, Verano porteno, and Tangata. Libertango was composed in 1974 and was a popular song that jumpstarted the Piazzolla boom and since then has been recorded, performed, and emulated by many composers and musicians worldwide. The second piece of this volume, Verano porteno or “Summer in Buenos Aires”, was the first of Piazzolla’s timeless Las cuatro estaciones (The Four “Buenos Aires” Seasons) collection and was originally written for a 1965 stage play. The third and final installment in this collection is Tangata. This piece was composed in 1965 and is dedicated to the Argentine choreographer Oscar Araiz. Astor Piazzolla Volume 1 is a fantastic collection which has already received a great deal of public acclaim and praise.
