JUDITH LANG ZAIMONT  

(b 1945 )

Judith Lang Zaimont’s music is internationally acclaimed for its drama and expressiveness and has been programmed around the globe by major ensembles such as the Philadelphia Orchestra, Baltimore and Mississippi Symphonies, Berlin Radio Orchestra, Czech Radio Orchestra, Kremlin Chamber Orchestra, Women’s Philharmonic, Connecticut Opera, New York Virtuosi, Pro Arte Chamber Orchestras (New York and Boston), American Guild of Organists, Harlem String Quartet, International Double Reed Society, World Viola Congress, Norway’s Bergen Wind Quintet, Zagreb Saxophone Quartet and others. Her 100+ works cover almost every genre: three symphonies, chamber opera, music for wind ensemble, works for solo voice and choral ensembles, and solo instrumental and chamber pieces. Zaimont has been widely honoured through composer prizes (including the Gottschalk International Competition first prize: Gold Medal and International McCollin Competition first prize), and awards (including a Guggenheim Fellowship, 2003 Aaron Copland Award, and 2005 Bush Foundation Fellowship). Two of her works were named to Century Lists: Doubles – 1993 (oboe and piano: Chamber Music America), and Sonata – 1999 (Piano & Keyboard magazine); and her pieces have been selected as required repertoire for international performance competitions in voice, piano and conducting. Her music is widely recorded (Naxos, Koch Classical, Harmonia Mundi, MSR, Albany, Leonarda, Arkiv Music, and 4-Tay) and her principal publisher is Subito Music Corp. After a teenage career as a concert pianist, Judith Zaimont completed college and graduate study in composition (City University of New York; Columbia University), and postgraduate study in orchestration in Paris with André Jolivet (as a Debussy Fellow of the Alliance Française de New York). This led to a distinguished musical career as educator (Peabody Conservatory, CUNY, Adelphi University and the University of Minnesota) and parallel contributions as writer and editor. Her books include the three-volume Greenwood Press series, The Musical Woman: An International Perspective, and her essays on music appear online in NewMusicBox (American Music Center’s magazine) and in various professional print journals.
