(b 1924 )

The American composer Edward Thomas studied composition with Tibor Serly and began a varied musical career as a guitarist, composer and song writer, at home in jazz, theatre, commercial and concert-music genres.


Thomas won considerable success with his Clarinet Concerto. Other works include Images for Oboe and Strings, Whimsey For Chamber Orchestra, the musical Six Wives (based on the life of Henry VIII), Fantasy For Two Clarinets commissioned by Stanley & Naomi Drucker and the musical Mata Hari. His opera Desire under the Elms is based on Eugene O’Neill’s quintessentially American play of that name.
