Description:
Ned Rorem (b. 1923) — Recalling Nadia (2013) for organ

Rorem’s final organ work, “Recalling Nadia” (2013), is a very tiny miniature commissioned by the 2015 Southeast Regional Convention of the American Guild of Organists (Charlotte, North Carolina). The title refers to Nadia Boulanger.

One of America’s best-known composers, Ned Rorem (b. 1923) was born in Indiana and educated at the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, the Curtis Institute, and the Juilliard School. During his career as a composer, he has written in every musical genre and fulfilled hundreds of commissions for major musical ensembles and performers around the world. He received the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Music for his orchestral suite “Air Music.” Rorem has taught composition at a number of institutions including extended tenures at the Curtis Institute and the Manhattan School of Music. He is also known for his prose writing, beginning with the 1966 publication of “The Paris Diary of Ned Rorem.” From 2000–03, Rorem was the President of the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
