Biography

Lowell Liebermann (born February 22, 1961 in New York City) is an American composer, pianist and conductor.

At the age of sixteen, Liebermann performed at the Carnegie Recital Hall, playing his Piano Sonata, op. 1. He later studied at the Juilliard School of Music with David Diamond and Vincent Persichetti, gaining bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees. His most recorded works are the Sonata for Flute and Piano (1987), the Gargoyles for piano (1989) and the Concerto for Flute and Orchestra (1992). Other notable works include a sonata for flute and guitar (1988), four cello sonatas (most recently 2008) the second piano concerto (1992), the opera The Picture of Dorian Gray (1996), a second symphony (2000), a trumpet concerto (2000), a violin concerto (2001), Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini for piano and orchestra (2001), and the opera Miss Lonelyhearts (2006) which was commissioned as part of the festivities surrounding the centennial of Juilliard.

His work combines elements of traditional tonality and structure with more adventurous harmonies. He is one of the more accessible contemporary composers. His Concerto for Piccolo and Orchestra, Concerto for Flute and Orchestra, and Concerto for Flute, Harp and Orchestra have been recorded by James Galway. American clarinettist Jon Manasse will premiere and record Mr.Liebermann’s Clarinet Concerto in November 2009.
