Eric Salzman: Composer, Author, Music Theater Innovator


New Releasings

Labor Records in collaboration with Naxos is releasing a series of recordings of my work covering more than half a century! The most recent release is "Jukebox in the Tavern of Love" paired with a new work by Meredith Monk. "The Nude Paper Sermon" and "Wiretap" is a double album containing no fewer than five works; see below for details. "Civilization & its Discontents" is a words-and-music collaboration with Michael Sahl. More information, reviews and ordering (physical or digital editions) is available below or by going to Labor Records.

Salzman and Desi Working Together Again

Eric Salzman and Thomas Desi are working together again, this time on a production of the Morty Feldman/Sam Beckett Neither—the only opera/music theater work either of them ever wrote. The Center for Contemporary Opera will present a workshop version at The Cell in May with Keira Duffy in the principal role and featuring a mime and videographer from Vienna. The whole production will then move to Vienna where it will be performed at the Wien Modern Festival in November. Productions with full orchestra will follow in Vienna and New York in 2010.
