The American conductor, composer and arranger Jerome D. Cohen was born in Spokane, Washington, in 1936 and studied at the New England Conservatory of Music. His compositions and arrangements have been widely performed in the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe and include an orchestration of Debussy’s Girl with the Flaxen Hair recorded by John Williams and the Boston Pops Orchestra and his Houghton Waltz, based on less well-known melodies by Strauss and first performed by the Minnesota Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin. Jerome Cohen has conducted throughout the United States and has appeared as guest conductor in London’s Royal Festival Hall. During his ten years as music director of the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra, he won three national awards for “adventuresome programming”. His reconstructions of the waltzes that Johann Strauss II composed for his 1872 visit to America can be heard on volumes 40, 46 and 47 of the Marco Polo Complete Strauss Edition. His Marco Polo conducting début was with the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra in the critically acclaimed collection of French ballroom favourites, Les succès de la Danse (Marco Polo 8.223801).
