The Phillips Collection presents the Leading International Composer Concert featuring Avner Dorman on December 17, at 6:30 pm in the Collection's Music Room in Washington DC.

The concert will include the world premiere of Suite for Solo Saxophone performed by Amanda Heim. In addition to Heim, Dorman chose world-renowned Israeli pianists Orli Shaham and Alon Goldstein, Israeli percussionist Tomer Yariv, and 2012 Naumburg International Violin Award-winner Tessa Lark to perform on the concert of his chamber music.

Dorman writes music of intricate craftsmanship and rigorous technique, expressed with a soulful and singular voice. A native of Israel now living in the United States, he draws on a variety of cultural and historical influences in composing. His works utilize an exciting and complex rhythmic vocabulary, as well as unique timbres and colors. Much of Dorman’s music finds its inspiration in the music of Israel and the surrounding region, extending the “Eastern” boundaries as far as the Indian subcontinent. The scales and the rhythms emanating from the traditional classical music of the peoples of the Mediterranean meet a modern, repetitive minimalism, prevailing also in the music tradition of the Middle East.More:
