Notes and Editorial Reviews

Edwin London has served living music throughout his distinguished career. Described as a "champion of new American music", the composer-conductor has founded two highly acclaimed ensembles: The Ineluctable Modality, a new music choral ensemble in 1968 and the Cleveland Chamber Symphony in 1980. He began his career playing principal French horn in the Orquesta Sinfonica de Venezuela and with other ensembles including the Oscar Pettiford Jazz Band. A graduate of Oberlin College, he received his doctorate from the University of Iowa, where he studied with Philip Greely Clapp. Since 1978, he has been professor at Cleveland State University. Jonathan D. Kramer the composer and professor of music at Columbia University writes: "Edwin London is Read more one of the most original and accomplished composers in America today. Unwilling to ally himself with any trendy school of composition and refusing even to see himself as either a radical or a conservative, he has gone his own way for many years, creating beautiful, challenging, inventive, marvelous music." 093228058823 New World 80588-2 "BOLCOM, William Read less
