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.  Mr. Gerber is currently writing another new orchestral
work at the request of the conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy, who will
conduct it in the 2007-08 season in his guest conducting tour of the
U.S.  Additionally a CD of Mr. Gerber's chamber music will be released
on KOCH International in Fall 2006, featuring the principal violinist
of New York City Ballet, Kurt Nikkanen.

Steven R. Gerber is the subject of an Electronic Dialogue
interview in Sequenza 21 web magazine, which can be read at
