Steven R. Gerber's music has gained international attention as a result
of two CD releases (on Chandos and KOCH) featuring several of his major
orchestral works, including the Symphony No. 1. Gerber has also achieved
great success in the United States and in his ten tours of the former
Soviet Union, perhaps becoming the most often-played living American
composer in that area. Of the Symphony No. 1, Evening Moscow wrote,
"Gerber could serve as an example of American musical professionalism
...he stands out with the highest of temperaments and musical taste." Mr.
Gerber has written for a number of fine soloists including Yuri Bashmet
for the viola concerto, Kurt Nikkanen for the violin concerto and Carter
Brey for the cello concerto. His work has been performed by groups such
as the Louisville Orchestra, Knoxville Chamber Orchestra, the Fine Arts
Quartet, the National Chamber Orchestra and the Russian Philharmonic.
