Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, composer

    • Ellen Taaffe Zwilich is inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame – ACMHF press release
    • Claudia Schreier & Company premiered a new work, “Wordplay,” a pas de deux set to the first movement of Ellen’s Quintet for Violin, Viola, Cello, Contrabass & Piano (2011), at an engagement at the Joyce Theater’s 2017 Ballet Festival. The New York Times, praising the work’s “playful, on-the-nose musicality,” said, “‘Wordplay’ was performed by Unity Phelan and Jared Angle of City Ballet, and it closely resembled something you might see them dance with their home company: a sleek duet to a spiky, rhythmic modernist score (a quintet by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich).” Watch a video of the seven-minute “Wordplay.”
