Jabez Press announces Composition Invitational winner.
Compositions were solicited from more than 50 established composers and were evaluated on compositional sophistication, appeal to advanced pianists and concertgoers, and marketability. Other distinguished competition finalists included Laurence Bitensky for Scent of the World We Gave Up, David Heuser for Twelve Miniatures for Piano, Liduino Pitombeira for Suite Brasiliera and Zaimont again for Sonata for Piano Solo.
Zaimont is a member of AMTs editorial committee. Bitensky and Pitombeira are past winners of the MTNA-Shepherd Distinguished Composer of the Year Award.
