Described in the Washington Post as “intellectually engaging, explosive with imagination and with a satisfying visceral power,” music by American composer David Froom (1951-2022) is featured on this concert honoring his artistic legacy. The program includes the New York premiere of his final work, “Lament for the City” for mixed ensemble. A Guggenheim fellow and twice honored by the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Mr. Froom (1951-2022) was awarded prizes or commissions by the Fromm, Koussevitzky and Barlow Foundations, and was first prize winner of the Kennedy Center’s Friedheim Awards.
