Calling All Elis

The Yale at Carnegie concert series will honor distinguished faculty member Ezra Laderman at Weill Recital Hall at 8pm on March 3 with a program that features a career-spanning range of Laderman’s chamber works, from his 1954 Bassoon Concerto to the New York premiere of Interior Landscapes II for two pianos, written in 2007.

Laderman (b. 1924) continues the line of distinguished composer-pedagogues at Yale, which has included Paul Hindemith, Krzystof Penderecki, and Jacob Druckman. His ties to the Yale School of Music run deep; after joining the YSM community as a composer-in-residence in 1988, he served as the Dean of the school from 1989 to 1995, and currently holds the position of Professor of Music in the Composition department.

There’s a podcast of a live performance of Laderman’s Concerto for Clarinet and Strings with David Shifrin, clarinet and Ransom Wilson, conducting members of the Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale, on Yale’s fabulous netcast page. If you haven’t discovered the Yale School of Music Netcasts page, get on over there. It has more than 100 downloadable podcasts of music and interviews with music luminaries, dating back to Aaron Copland.

And those of you who know Professor Laderman, leave your mosaltovs here.

Hey Jerry, it’s usually transliterated as “mazel tov,” although I respect the W. Virginia Yiddish dialect known as “coalmineridish”

A big mazel tov from me, a Teaneck ex-pat who went to high school with Jacob Laderman, one of Prof. Laderman’s sons, and who visited their house a few times.
