Charles Ives FellowshipI have been awarded one of two 2018 Charles Ives Fellowships from the The American Academy of Arts and Letters. Read the press release here. The Academy's generous citation read as follows:
Peter Van Zandt Lane is a skillful and versatile composer whose music continues to evolve at lightning speed. At every turn, his propulsive, incisive work is beautifully and confidently made. Characterized by driving rhythms, bold harmonic gestures, and whimsical melodies, Mr. Lane's music is as inviting as it is sophisticated. The darkly colorful trombone concerto 'Radix Tyrannis' presents an alluring, unique narrative; its overall design is strong and sure.
