Ms. Zaimont’s work was up against a multitude of scores submitted by national and international applicants. The City of Maricopa should take great pride to have someone of such extensive talent and achievement living the simple life in their quiet Phoenix suburb rather than choosing to live in a major city with a lively arts scene like New York or Boston.
Judith Lang Zaimont is internationally recognized for her distinctive style, characterized by its expressive strength and dynamism. Ms. Zaimont's music is frequently played in the United States (including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center) and abroad. It is published (MMB Music, Inc., Galaxy/ ECS, Vivace, Jeanné, C. F. Peters, Lyra, Walton) and recorded (Naxos, Albany, Arabesque, Koch, Leonarda, 4-Tay) and commissioned by ensembles and solo performers world-wide.
Words of praise for Ms. Zaimont’s work include:
“I have long considered Judith Lang Zaimont to be one of the most consistently rewarding composers of her generation..”
“Her music immediately immerses the auditor in Zaimont’s own soundscape …. This is music sown with seeds of greatness.” - David DeBoor Canfield, 2012
