Judith Lang Zaimont's "Stillness - Poem for Orchestra", a single 16-minute
movement in three panels, slow-fast, slow, was conceived and completed
in sketch-score during a Spring 2004 residency at Copland House.  It was
jointly commissioned by the Rockford Symphony Orchestra with Maestro
Steven Larsen, the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra with Maestro Crafton
Beck and the University of Wyoming Symphony Orchestra with Maestro Michael
Griffith.  The Rockford Register-Star wrote this of the Premiere
performance, "The music included opportunities to explore the many
different sounds available to many different instruments and included
dissonance, rhythmic palpitations, ethereal harmonics and a principal
pitch of G sharp that weaved in and out of the work.  From a purely
compositional and musical perspective, the work was an excellent piece,
well-crafted and well-presented...."

Judith Lang Zaimont is internationally recognized for her distinctive
style, characterized by its expressive strength and dynamism.  Most
recently she has been Featured Composer for the National Federation of
Music Clubs, Commissioned Composer of the California Music Teachers
Association, Commissioned Composer for the International San Antonio

mCcollin Competition for Composers (for "Symphony No. 1", performed
by the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1996).  Her biography is found in most

in professional journals, including Clavier and Chamber Music magazine,
the latter of which can be read at
