Earl Kim (1920-1998, American)

I know the music of Earl Kim – an American composer of Korean descent, pupil of Schoenberg, Ernest Bloch and Roger Sessions and composition teacher at Princeton and Harvard (the epitome, you might say, of the “Academic composer” – mainly through his superb Violin Concerto, a commission of Itzhak Perlman from 1979, which he recorded in 1983 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Seiji Ozawa (with another of his commissions, the Violin Concerto of Robert Starer):
