 Update me on new releases by Durante

Jimmy Durante (1893 - 1980)

Through a number of high profile international performances, Georges Lentz has established himself in recent years as one of Australia's leading composers - this despite the fact that he is far from being a prolific writer. Given to self-criticism, he rarely embarks on new compositions, is mostly shy of accepting commissions, and tends to work on each of his pieces over a number of years, often tackling several of them at the same time.

Born in Luxembourg (Europe) in 1965, Georges Lentz grew up in the picturesque town of Echternach with its medieval abbey, an environment that has influenced his music as well as his general outlook. He studied violin and music theory at the Luxembourg Conservatoire, the Paris Conservatoire National Superieur, and the Hannover Musikhochschule. He studied composition in Luxembourg with Alexander Mullenbach and followed Peter Sculthorpe's classes at the University of Sydney. Since 1989, he has been working on a cycle of pieces called "Caeli enarrant ..." ("The Heavens are telling..." - beginning of Psalm XIX), which are based on astronomy and reflect the composer's spiritual beliefs, questions, and doubts. He has been living in Australia since 1990.

Georges Lentz' compositions have been widely played in many European countries as well as in the U.S.A., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and China. Many leading ensembles have performed his works, including the Nieuw Sinfonietta Amsterdam, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Ensemble Continuum New York, Ensemble Oriol Berlin, Sydney Symphony Orchestra,
