Judith Zaimont, classical music composer
Internationally lauded for her dramatic, emotional and vibrant works,
Judith Lang Zaimont
has been described as "a serious artist, formidably endowed, and capable of a broad audience appeal" [Fanfare] and "a composer of the first rank- a mid-career master" [New Music Connoisseur].
Many of Zaimont's 100 musical compositions have been recorded and have won prizes in national and international competitions. Critics consistently praise her music, terming it "expressive and idiomatic" [Clavier], "colorful and commanding" [The New Records], and "exquisitely crafted, vividly characterized and wholly appealing" [New York Times].
A grantee of both National Endowments and a Guggenheim Foundation Fellow, Zaimont is also a 2003 Aaron Copland Award winner and recipient of a 2005 Bush Foundation Artist Fellowship. After a distinguished career as an educator (Peabody Conservatory, CUNY, Adelphi University, University of Minnesota), she is now composing full-time. Judith and her husband, artist Gary Zaimont, live in the greater Phoenix area.
