Jacob Druckman, who died in 1996, was a unique voice among contemporary composers and the soundscapes he created reflected the manysidedness of the music of our time. He was also a teacher, a conductor, and a musical catalyst, a highly effective spokesman for contemporary music and musicians.

Druckman's own output contained works in the large and small media. In addition to his orchestra works, he wrote for ensembles (with or without voice) and for solo instruments. Just before his untimely death, he had begun work on a piano concerto for Emanuel Ax.

The 75th anniversary of Jacob Druckman's birth is being celebrated in 2003.

"...a tour de force of orchestral writing as all Mr. Druckman's scores for large ensemble seem to be. But the virtuosity always serves as expressive purpose, it is never laid on for show."

John Rockwell, The New York Times
