JEREMY ELMAN CAVATERRA has established himself as a very busy composer and pianist in the United States and abroad. Reviewing his Monterey Suite for orchestra, San Francisco bay area critic Joseph Gold wrote:
“Cavaterra would hold his own in any period of music history. What sets this contemporary music apart, and high above the others, is rhapsodic melodic line and brilliant orchestration which is never heavy or overbearing.”
Born in New York City in 1971 and educated at Manhattan School of Music, Jeremy now lives in California. From 2010–2018 he was Composer-in-Residence for The Salastina Society chamber music series in Los Angeles. Since 2018 he has been Composer-in-Residence for The Young People’s Symphony Orchestra in the San Francisco bay area.
Jeremy's work spans the range of ensembles from solo instrumental, vocal and choral, chamber, through symphonic orchestral works. Recent premières include Nemeton, for oboe and strings; Capriccio Concertante for clarinet, strings, and harp; Lost Coast, commissioned and performed by The Mission Chamber Orchestra of San Jose; and the forthcoming Ascent to the Sierras, a symphonic tone-poem commissioned by The Young People’s Symphony Orchestra.
Jeremy has been recently commissioned to write a cello concerto for Robert DeMaine, principal cellist of The Los Angeles Philharmonic.
