Laura Kaminsky, Composer

kaminsky-headshot-home Laura Kaminsky is a New York-based composer of chamber, vocal, and orchestral music, with scores addressing social-political topics like the environment and war. Kaminsky is a composer with “an ear for the new and interesting” whose works are “colorful and harmonically sharp-edged” (The New York Times) and whose “musical language is compounded of hymns, blues, and gestures not unlike those of Shostakovich” (inTune). Social and political themes are common in her work, as is an abiding respect for and connection to the natural world. The visual is made manifest in sound, with color and image often serving as the underlying inspiration.
