Albany Records to Release "Pure Colors" CD Featuring Six Works by Judith
Lang Zaimont for Solo Instruments and Small Chamber Ensembles

New York, NY - Albany Records has announced the November 1 release of
"Pure Colors" (Troy 785) - a new CD featuring six works by Judith Lang
Zaimont for solo instruments and small chamber ensembles.

CD highlights include the first recordings of the required competition
piece for the 2003 International San Antonio Piano Competition, works
for solo clarinet, solo cello and solo flute, and two small-ensemble
works that are already recital 'hits' (2005 National Flute Association,
and National Association of Teachers of Singing).  The performers are
primarily Minnesota-based artists.

The works included on the composer-supervised release are:

WIZARDS - Three Magic Masters (2003) - Young-Ah Tak, piano

ASTRAL ... a mirror life on the astral plane  (2004) - John Anderson,
clarinet

Virgie Rainey - Two Narratives for Soprano, Mezzo and Piano (2002) -
Wendy Zaro-Mullins, soprano, Jean del Santo, mezzo-soprano, Timothy
Lovelace, piano

Valse Romantique (1974) - Immanuel Davis, flute

'Tanya' Poems (1999) - 1:Couplet - 2: Sestina - Tanya Remenikova, cello

'Bubble-Up' Rag - Concertpiece for Flute and Piano (2001) - Immanuel Davis,
flute, Nanette Kaplan Solomon, piano

The composer has written the following about this disk, "When a new piece
really clicks with the musicians preparing it for first public performance
there is a splendid side benefit to composer and performer alike, and
a boost to the potential for the music's healthy after-life.  I've been
fortunate throughout my three-decades' teaching career to have experienced
performance collaborations involving my music with a goodly number of
top-rate faculty colleagues including the past 14 years at the University
of Minnesota, where I taught composition amidst a group of performance
faculty many of whom are notable interpreters, and eager proponents, of
the newest notes.  This disc celebrates several mostly "Minnesota"
collaborations, centering on more recent solo works.  Several of these
pieces received their premieres in vital interpretations by the same
artists heard here." Publisher information for the works is listed below.

"Pure Colors" will be available at all fine record outlets and also
through Albany Records at http://www.albanyrecords.com/.

This recording was made possible in part by Scholar of the College of
Liberal Arts award to Judith L. Zaimont in recognition of her creative
accomplishments at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.

Composer Judith Lang Zaimont is internationally recognized for her
distinctive style, characterized by its expressive strength and dynamism.
Recent accolades include a 2003 Aaron Copland Award, and a 2005-6 Artists
Fellowship from the Bush Foundation, and the 2006-7 Kaplan Foundation
wind ensemble commission; appointments as Commissioned Composer of the
California Music Teachers Association, Commissioned Composer for the
International San Antonio Piano Competition, and Honored Composer at the
11th Van Cliburn International Competition (2001).  Among her many earlier
honors are a Guggenheim Fellowship, artist's grants from both National
Endowments (Arts and Humanities), and First Prize in the international
1995 McCollin Competition for Composers (for "Symphony No.  1", performed
by the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1996).  Her music is widely performed
throughout the U.S.  and Europe and has been recorded for the Naxos,
Koch International Classics, Arabesque, Milken Family Foundation, Albany,
Jeanne, Leonarda, Northeastern, and 4Tay labels.  Her principal publishers
are MMB Music, Inc., Galaxy/ECS, Vivace, Jeanne, C.  F.  Peters, Lyra
and Walton.

Her music has been widely documented (12 doctoral papers to date),
and her biography is found in most standard reference works (e.g.,
New Grove's).  Zaimont works are cited on two "Best of the 20th Century
lists" (Chamber Music America; Piano & Keyboard Magazine), and she is
the subject both of individual chapters in specialist volumes and major
articles in professional journals.  Judith Zaimont also brings outstanding
academic credentials to her musical activities, having served for many
years as a distinguished composition teacher at New York's Queens College
and Adelphi University, Baltimore's Peabody Conservatory, and Minneapolis's
University of Minnesota School of Music.  More information about Ms.
Zaimont, including sound clips of many of her compositions, is available
at her website http://www.jzaimont.com/.
