Judith Zaimont, classical music composer

Judith Zaimont


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.
