PARMA is pleased to welcome New York-based composer Gerald Cohen to our growing family of artists. PARMA will be releasing a full album of arrangments and original compositions by Cohen featuring performances by NYC’s Grneta Ensemble in 2014.
Cohen’s music has been commissioned by groups as varied as the Cassatt String Quartet, the New York Virtuoso Singers, and the Battery Dance Company, and his works have been performed by noted groups such as the San Diego Symphony and Princeton Pro Musica. This current project, aptly titled SEA OF REEDS, focuses on chamber works featuring the clarinet and features compositions and arrangements that seek to unite Cohen’s often intersecting musical lives and both a composer and a cantor. Be sure to watch this space for more updates on the project in the coming months!
