Early Music America (EMA) and Naxos Records will come together once again in a competition for early music soloists and ensembles. The winner will receive a debut commercial recording to be produced and marketed by Naxos.

EMA and Naxos hope to promote the career development of emerging early music artists and the philosophy of historically informed performance by offering to the public a CD of the highest quality.

The competition will be the fourth in EMA’s history and the second in collaboration with Naxos. The Catacoustic Consort (Annalisa Pappano, dir.) was the winner of the inaugural recording competition during the 2002/2003 season.
