Furious Artisans is a unique record label dedicated to modern classical music, also called 'New Music'. Our primary focus is on contemporary American composers such as Jonathan Dawe, Matthew Greenbaum, Frank Brickle, Robert Martin and others. Our current and past advisory board has included such notable figures as Milton Babbitt, Chester Biscardi and Mark Rimple. We are also interested in forgotten or under appreciated composers of the 20th century, such as Dane Rudhyar and Giacinto Scelsi.
All of our recordings are carefully crafted to the highest standards of production, performance and audio quality.
Much of the music in our catalog has been exclusively recorded and released by furious artisans, thanks to a host of dedicated performers and composers, and the financial assistance of grantmaking institutions such as the NEA, The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, The Alice M. Ditson Fund, and others.
Please take some time to browse the catalog and listen to previews of the music. If you are interested in purchasing any of the music, please look for the links to an online source such as Amazon.com, or for our more recent releases the link to our distributor (Naxos).
Please feel free to contact us with your comments and suggestions, especially with music that you would like to see produced in the future. If you are a composer or performer and have an idea for a record, feel free to contact us about your project.
