ABOUT UPRIGHT VOL. I
Upright is a carefully curated selection of sheet music that brings together the best contemporary music for solo piano. It is irregularly produced and makes no profit. All the composers involved have donated their music for free and any profits go to Effective Altruism Funds, a charitable organisation that collects donations and passes them on to wherever the money would do the most good to the greatest number of people: app.effectivealtruism.org/funds/about
Upright Vol. I features beautiful music from 12 wonderful contemporary composers including Emmy award-winner Michael Price. The music has been transcribed by either the composer or the editor, and has been carefully edited for clarity, accuracy and ease of use, with helpful notes and links where you can listen to the full piece and, if you like, support the composer financially.
