Recent & Upcoming Events
Composer Frederic Glesser's musical spectrum ranges from his rock/ jazz influenced
"Saucy Sally, Mad Mary" for trombone and percussion, to the arrangement of The Allman Brothers' Band
"Statesboro Blues" for string quartet, to the zany "Clearly Glass" written for Toronto's The Glass Orchestra.
His solo piano composition "For One" ("It is as much about silence as music" wrote music critic Tim Smith
of Fort Lauderdale's Sun-Sentinel) written for pianist/ composer Max Lifchitz is now recorded on the
Grammy-nominated North/ South Recording "Final Bell".
A 2010 commission by Dutch pianist Marcel Worms for The New Blues for Piano project has resulted
in “Clear Blue” for solo piano. Premiered at the JazzWeek Festival in Leiden, Netherlands (January 2012)
with subsequent performances TBA.
His catalog also contains numerous contemporary mainstream works from small ensemble to full orchestra,
which will include the upcoming series of compositions written specifically for youth orchestra.
A competent flutist before turning his attention entirely to composition, Glesser has also produced a
number of significant pieces which spotlight the flute. His "Sonata" for flute and piano is now available through Falls House Press and is distributed solely by The Theodore Presser Company.
