Stanley Friedman

Biography and Reviews

Stanley Friedman’s compositions have been premiered by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Memphis Symphony, lʼEnsemble Intercontemporain, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Chamber Music Society, the Northwestern University Orchestra, the Wilma Smith Quartet (Australia), the Spanish Brass, the Italian WonderBrass, the Canadian Brass and by major soloists and ensembles at music festivals world-wide. He is a 4-time winner of the International Trumpet Guild Composition Prize. His solo trumpet work SOLUS has become a world success, with multiple CD recordings and programming on recitals and trumpet competitions in many countries. Friedmanʼs first opera HYPATIA, premiered in concert at the New Zealand International Festival of the Arts, earned praise as “orchestrally impressive and lyrically quite rich” (NZ Opera news). Friedman was identified as “...a significant new opera composer.”

After earning a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in composition at the Eastman School of Music, Stanley Friedman began a performing career that has included principal trumpet positions with the New Zealand Symphony, the Israel Philharmonic, the Hong Kong Philharmonic and other orchestras. He also has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and recorded for motion pictures, television and commercial CDs. His solo CD, “The Lyric Trumpet” (ODE), was honored as “Best Classical Recording” by the New Zealand Music Awards.

Stanley Friedman has taught at Victoria University (NZ), Tel Aviv University, the Interlochen Arts Academy, the University of Mississippi and other institutions.
A Yamaha Trumpet Artist, Friedman tours internationally, conducting and soloing in his compositions and presenting master classes at universities and conservatories in Europe, Australasia and the USA.

Reviews

"Regenesis, [conducted by composer Stanley Friedman] combines sustained dissonant string chords with a recurring bassoon theme...and progresses to a busy polyphonic texture, with banter between woodwinds and brasses... The piece suggested the sensation of a momentous occasion and an ensuing journey."
Memphis Commercial Appeal on Opera Memphis Salutes Israel at Fifty.

"(Friedman is] ...a significant new opera composer. Undoubtedly a dramatic plot... Glorious...melodies, communicating directly and making the dramatic points with an ease that is welcome."
The Dominion (New Zealand)

"...Hypatia is dynamite! It's surely going to be one of the best-loved operas of our time. ...your Music not only capitalizes on all the opportunities the story provides but goes beyond that to be just wonderful music in its own right. Few composers have shown me such ability to write music which is clear and expressive in its harmonic shadings while at the same time fresh and personal."
Dr. Donald Friend, Indiana University

"...His music creates engaging sonorities and provocative rhythms... The ingenious trumpet and tuba solos call for a specialized form of dexterity and tonal production and received expert service from Thomas Stevens and Roger Bobo."
Los Angeles Times

"I have had a real, strong emotional shock listening to… [Hypatia]. You have a great talent."
Jean-Pierre Mathez, BIM Publications, Switzerland

"...Songs from Porgy and Bess brought moments of musical magic. The (Christchurch, NZ Symphony) offered accompaniments of commendable sensitivity and tonal richness. [Conductor] Stanley Friedman ably directed the players through a sparkling delivery..."
The Christchurch Press, New Zealand

"...Friedman had been commissioned by the ITG to write a new work ... Given the success of his widely acclaimed Solus, he had seemed a most logical choice. This new work LAUDE. . . is an unusually effective solo.... It constantly demands the listener' s attention."
ITG Journal

"...The most significant performance of the 1992 festival. Hypatia followed a more traditional pattern, as befits a classical subject, with set pieces that studied states of mind, with time for things to evolve. Hypatia comes across as well-made.. Orchestrally impressive and lyrically quite rich."
New Zealand Opera News

"The fullest example of what the voice is capable of was provided by Stanley Friedman's She Walks in Beauty... It has erotically charged scriabin-like harmonies and ecstatically arching vocal lines delivered with effortless beauty."
The Dominion, New Zealand

His new Concerto Grosso skillfully joins classical and baroque ... Ideas and forms with a strictly contemporary musical language. ... Full of dramatic surprises... Totally American, totally original...
Pasadena Star News


Endorsements

"Trumpeters know Friedman especially due to his SOLUS, but with his SONATA #2 IN F-MINOR] he demonstrates a depth knowledge of the Romantic language and fills a gap that was empty until now in the Romantic repertoire for trumpet.”
Domingo Lagomazzini [Trumpetland]

“My recent graduate recital in partial fulfillment toward a certificate in trumpet performance featured Friedman's SONATA #2 IN F-MINOR for Trumpet & Piano. It is challenging without being stupid difficult. The lowest regions of the trumpet's range share equal billing with the upper register. Although slightly over 20 minutes, it is organized such that the audience doesn't lose interest. Lastly, it is a joy to play. I look forward to performing another of his works.”
Stephen P. Cohen (Computer scientist; trumpeter)

“Friedman is a significant composer of our time. One of his latest works, MEYN ZIS KIND, embracing klezmer motifs for clarinet and piano, is especially moving and exquisite.”
Dr. Stephen Wachtel (klezmer artist; Professor of Genetics, University of Tennessee, ret.)

“Stanley Friedman’s first STRING QUARTET is awesomely good - engrossing to work on and really fun to play. We were thrilled to be able to give its World Premiere performance in Melbourne, Australia. The audience loved it too!”
Wilma Smith (Concertmaster, Melbourne Symphony & New Zealand Symphony, ret.)

"I've been fortunate to play a lot of great music in my career but there is one particular solo I always keep going back too as a favorite...LA PITTURA.”
"CLASSICAL CONCERTO should be a standard in our repertoire. Filling a void, Stanley created a piece worthy of our rep next to Haydn and Hummel - except even more hummable melodies!"
“THE HYDRA, VANQUISHED is a very serious piece of music that captures the emotion and strength needed for life's hardships - thankfully with the brilliance of this music all listeners and performers are given 'hope'."
Ryan Anthony, The Ryan Anthony Foundation / CancerBlows President / Artistic Director; principal trumpet, Dallas Symphony; former member of Canadian Brass

“Hearing Tristan William’s performance of Stanley Friedman’s SOLUS at ITG2009 was a revelation.  The combination of extraordinary musical performance artistry with a piece that challenges and inspires was a true revelation to me.  Tristan’s realization of this wonderful work highlighted its true theatrical character and created an opportunity to fully appreciate the value and importance of contemporary composition and performance.”
Brian Evans, President, International Trumpet Guild; Australian Opera & Ballet Orchestra

SOJOURNER TRUTH Cantata, Mvt 3: "Ain't I a Woman"
0:00
SOJOURNER TRUTH is a 30-minute, 5 - movement Cantata for Classical/Gospel soprano, clarinet, trumpet, tuba, piano & percussion. The text for each movement is taken from speeches of the great 19th-Century abolitionist and women's rights advocate known as Sojourner Truth. Born into slavery, she gained her freedom and traveled across America, decrying the horrors of slavery, recruiting African Americans for the Union Army and agitating for women's suffrage. The Cantata was commissioned in 2016 by faculty of Nicholls State University in Louisiana. The performers are: soprano Valeria Francis, clarinetist Michael Bartnik, trumpeter Mathew Swihart, tubist Jason Ladd, pianist Shane Anderson, percussionist Gustavo Miranda. The recording was engineered by Mark Woodring and conducted by Stanley Friedman.

The performers on this live concert recording are: Violin I Wilma Smith (concertmaster of Melbourne Symphony & New Zealand Symphony, ret.) Violin II Rebecca Chan (international soloist and chamber musician) Viola Christopher Moore (principal, MelbourneSymphony) Cello Svetlana Bogosavljevic (guest principal, Bamberger Symphoniker & North German Radio)
ABDUCTION DANCE
0:00
Abduction Dance from the opera HYPATIA; reading session by New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Stanley Friedman In 415 CE Alexandria was torn by sectarian conflict. Roman military authority had failed, and the Prefect-Governor Orestes was unable to maintain order. The Christians, led by their charismatic Archbishop Cyril, persecuted and expelled the Jews. Cyril then turned against the Museion (the Great Library of Alexandria), portraying its Director Hypatia as a witch and Satan-worshipper. [She actually was a mathematician and astronomer. But her political outspokenness challenged Cyril’s authority.] When Hypatia’s clandestine love affair with Orestes was discovered, the Christians rioted. In the melee, Orestes was attacked by the monk Ammonius, who, in turn, was arrested and executed. In response, more monks, led by Peter, Reader of the Church, abducted Hypatia and brought her to the Caesarium (the Church of Alexandria, originally a pagan temple built by Marc Antony in honor of Julius Caesar). There, she was ritualistically slain on the church altar, and her body was burned. Most of the Museion was burned as well, with some 400,00 scientific scrolls lost. The destruction of the Museion marked the end of Classical civilization and the onset of the Dark Ages. In the ABDUCTION DANCE, Hypatia is attacked by Cyril's followers, bound and carried to the Caesarium.
