Sam Adler: Building Bridges with Music
One of the most celebrated and prolific living American composers, Sam Adler was born to a Jewish family in 1928 in Mannheim, Germany, the son of Hugo Chaim Adler, a cantor and composer, and Selma Adler. In 1939, the family fled to the United States, where Sam Adler emerged as a leading figure in American classical music.
Adler was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters in May 2001, and then inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame in October 2008. He is the composer of over 400 published works, including 5 operas, 6 symphonies, 12 concerti, 9 string quartets, 5 oratorios and many other orchestral, band, chamber and choral works and songs, which have been performed all over the world.
Adler recently published a memoir entitled "Building Bridges with Music", and this program will feature an interview with Adler about his career as a composer and educator followed by a performance of chamber works.
