John Sampen (b1949)


As one of America's leading concert saxophonists, John Sampen is particularly recognized as a distinguished artist in contemporary literature. He has commissioned over eighty new works, including compositions by Adler, Babbitt, Bolcom, Cage, Rzewski and Rands and has premiered saxophone versions of music by Lutoslawski, Stockhausen and Tower.

In 1970, John Sampen was recitalist and certificate winner at the prestigious International Geneva Concours in Switzerland. He has performed as soloist with ensembles from all over the world, including the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Internazionale d’Italia, New Mexico Symphony and Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble.

As recipient of NEA and Meet the Composer grants, John Sampen has been involved with commissions and premieres of new music by Albright, Babbitt, Martino and Subotnick. His London premiere of Subotnick's In Two Worlds with the Electric Symphony featured him as the first classical performer to solo on Yamaha's WX7 Wind Controller. The performance inspired an English critic to write of "the excellence, the musicianship and the total involvement of John Sampen... tremendous passion and eloquence."
