      Legendary DAVID AMRAM was named               Composer-in-Residence of the New York Chamber Music Festival, coinciding with the 50th       Anniversary of Leonard Bernstein selecting Amram as the first ever Composer-in-Residence of the New York Philharmonic.      Amram was commissioned by the New York Chamber Music Festival to compose a new work for the Amram Ensemble: THREE LOST LOVES for violin, saxophone and piano, based on stories by authors Willa Cather, Zora Neale Hurston and Jack Kerouac, world-premiered on October 3, 2016, at the ZKM Center for Art & Media in Karlsruhe, Germany by the Amram Ensemble: Elmira Darvarova (violin), Kenneth Radnofsky (saxophone) and Thomas Weaver (piano). The Amram Ensemble also presented the American premiere of this new work on Dec. 7, 2016 in Philadelphia, and the New York premiere on Dec. 12, 2016 in New York City. The work was recorded for the CD "David Amram - So in America" and was nominated for the prestigious Pulitzer Prize.
