 Update me on new releases by Amram

David Amram (b11/17/1930)

The work of American composer David Amram is tinged with his interest in jazz. A horn player, he had early experience of orchestral work before studying at the Manhattan School. His prolific career has brought a quantity of incidental music and film scores, and an association with Kerouac, Ginsberg and others of the so-called ‘beat generation’.

Stage Works

Amram’s association with the New York Shakespeare Festival has spawned incidental music for 25 plays, and, again in association with the festival’s producer Joseph Papp, the opera Twelfth Night. He explores a more serious vein in The Final Ingredient, an opera for television dealing with the final successful attempt of concentration camp prisoners to celebrate Passover.

Orchestral and Vocal Music

Among works that show varied musical interests, Songs of the Soul (Shiray Neshama) explores Jewish traditions beyond those associated with Ashkenazim. His Shir L’erev Shabbat, Sabbath prayers, is his most important sacred work.
