Adam Gorb Joins Composers Edition

Performed and recorded world-wide for nearly four decades, Adam Gorb is perhaps best known for his brass and wind ensemble music. This belies a broader range of highly engaging and equally fine wrought works including the sixteen presented by Composers Edition. The largest of these is his 2012 opera Anya 17 which was premiered in Liverpool and Manchester to great acclaim and has since been performed in Romania, Germany, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Much in demand, this month has seen him as featured composer at the Chetham’s Summer Music Festival with two concerts devoted to his music. In November Gorb’s latest opera The Path to Heaven will be given its USA premiere in Wichita, Kansas and there is a further production programmed for January 2020 in Dallas, Texas. He is currently working on 24 preludes for piano for Clare Hammond, with performances planned in various venues in summer/autumn 2020. On coming aboard with Composers Edition, Gorb says;

I am thrilled and delighted to be joining Composers Edition. It will be inspiring to join a community of music creators, many of whom I know and respect greatly. I am looking forward to sharing good practise rather than being in competition and seeing our works make their way in the musical world.

Our initial offering includes the opera Anya 17 plus works for a diverse range of chamber forces including string ensemble, string, saxophone, tuba and percussion quartets, mixed trios and duos, and solos.

The balance between frothy fun and truly thought-provoking music is very well struck indeed
