David Sampson (*1951)

Born in 1951 in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the United States, David Sampson has rapidly established himself as one of the outstanding composers of his generation.

He holds degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music, Hunter College, Manhattan School of Music and the Ecoles d'Art Américaines, where his teachers included Karel Husa, Henri Dutilleux and John Corigliano for composition, and Gerard Schwarz, Gilbert Johnson, Robert Nagel and Raymond Mase for trumpet.

His choral, orchestral, solo and chamber ensemble works are performed and recorded regularly around the world by celebrated soloists, ensembles and orchestras, and during his career he has received numerous professional awards.

Among his most important compositions it is worth noting various works for ensemble commissioned by the Chicago Chamber Musicians, the "Serenade" for flugelhorn and strings (Colonial Symphony), "Hommage JFK" (National Symphony Orchestra) and "Triptych" for trumpet and orchestra (ITG -International Trumpet Guild), premiered by Raymond Mase at the Aspen Music Festival and then with the American Composers Orchestra at the Carnegie Hall, New York.

His works are widely published and appear on recordings with Channel Recordings and Summit Records.
