 Update me on new releases by Karchin

Louis Karchin (b9/08/1951)

Described as a composer of “fearless eloquence” (Andrew Porter, The New Yorker), Louis Karchin has been honored with two awards from the American Academy of Arts and Letters as well as grants and commissions from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Serge Koussevitzky Music Foundation of the Library of Congress, the Fromm Music Foundation at Harvard University, and the Barlow Foundation of Brigham Young University. Critic Alex Ross cited Karchin’s masque, Orpheus, in its 2005 Albany Records release, as one of the year’s best works, and the British journal, Contemporary Music Review, singled out Karchin as one of the twenty-five most exciting American composers born in the decade of the 1950’s. Karchin was also chosen as one of 52 composers selected to represent New York at the turn of the millennium in the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s “Great Day in New York” Festival at Alice Tully Hall. Champions of his music have included sopranos Lucy Shelton and Elizabeth Farnum, cellist Fred Sherry, violinist Rolf Schulte, baritone Dominic Inferrera, and pianists Stephen Gosling, Marilyn Nonken and James Winn.
