C. Alan Publications was founded in 1989 to fill a need for high-quality percussion literature.  Since that time, they have adhered to the highest standards of music integrity in the percussion music they publish.  In 1997, they added a line of concert band music to their catalogue, which continues to flourish.  More recently they added music for orchestra (youth, string and full), brass ensemble, chorus, jazz ensemble and chamber ensembles. 

In addition they are the sole distributor of 'Whole Sum Productions' percussion catalogue (WS).  Their music receives extensive exposure through performances on international concerts, clinics and conventions and is widely available on compact disc.

Programme Notes / Performance Details :

Written for percussionist Alison Shaw of Michigan State University and tubist Marty Erickson of Pennsylvania State University, KraftWerk is a six-movement work showcasing the virtuosic capabilities of both the percussionist and tubist at all times. As usual, McCarthy’s percussion writing is extremely effective and fun to play, while the tuba writing ranges from beautiful and lyrical to down and dirty. Excellent for an advanced student or faculty recital.
