CURTIS BRYANT - Links and Credits
Below are some helpful links to related web pages which feature colleagues, collaborators and other connections.  The musical samples in MP3 format which are highlighted on my "concert music" page are offered strictly for review and demonstration and may not be duplicated or used for commercial purposes without the permission of this composer and the performing artists.  Many of these selections are incomplete excerpts from movements of larger works which were recorded during live performances.  Some have received live broadcasts on public radio.  They are not available commercially, but I will be happy to send full recordings for study, if available, when accompanying any order for sheet music which I publish directly.  Many thanks to these fine musicians.
