New York-based composer Steven R. Gerber’s music has gained international attention as a result of Chandos, Koch and Arabesque CD releases featuring several of his major orchestral works, including Symphony No. 1, Kurt Nikkanen’s performance of the Violin Concerto and Jon Manasse’s performance of the Clarinet Concerto. His orchestral work Music in Dark Times was commissioned by Vladimir Ashkenazy and the four World Premiere performances took place in March, 2009, with Maestro Ashkenazy conducting the San Francisco Symphony.
