G. Schirmer Inc. has announced that it has reached a publishing administration agreement with Du Yun, a composer, performer, activist, and curator, who has created the opera “Angel’s Bone.” “Angel’s Bone” was the piece for which Du Yun won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize.

Du Yun’s “Sweetland” is set to world premiere in 2020 with The Industry opera company. She will also get a world premiere with the LA Phil new Music Grou, followed by another piece with the Grossman Ensemble.

In April, “Give Me Back My Fingerprints” will be showcase at UCLA right before “Angel’s Bone” receives its west coast premiere at LA Opera in May.

In 2021, Du Yun will premiere a piece commissioned by the New York Philharmonic. She will also see “In Our Daughter’s Eyes” performed by Beth Morrison Projects and Trinity Wall Street.

“It is a privilege for us to be working with Du Yun, a composer whose daring music is at the forefront of contemporary musical innovation,” stated Robert Thompson, President of G. Schirmer, Inc. in a press release. “In providing a home for her music publishing, we are excited to collaborate and develop her vision as a cutting-edge artist and composer.

“I am very excited to be working with G. Schirmer — the team there is incredibly supportive of my work, and I know it will be a great collaboration,” added Du Yun.
