Now at Copland House

It's hard to resist the temptation to say that Love has arrived ... but it's true! JOEL LOVE is settling in for a month-long stay here, having flown just a few days ago from his home-base in Houston. Joel's compositions often seek to marry popular music and jazz (which shaped his early life in Texas and Louisiana) with Western classical music. From jazz-tinged reinventions of Chopin to wind pieces performed by prestigious ensembles around the world, his compositions play with an eclectic range of musical idioms to create a cinematic, emotional, and gripping experience. His music has recently been performed at Carnegie Hall, Cleveland's Severance Hall, and the Carmel Art and Film Festival and Sedona Film Festival. As a pianist, he performs a wide variety of styles, from contemporary classical to jazz.
