David Lang is one of the most highly esteemed American composers writing today. His works have been performed around the world and in many of the great concert halls.
The recipient of a wide array of awards, Lang received the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in music for the the little match girl passion, based on a fable by Hans Christian Andersen and Lang's own rewriting of the libretto to Bach's St. Matthew's Passion. The recording of the piece on Harmonia Mundi was awarded a 2010 Grammy Award for Best Small Ensemble Performance.
His music is used regularly in ballet and dance productions around the world, by such choreographers as Benjamin Millepied, Twyla Tharp, Susan Marshall and Edouard Lock. Lang's film work includes the score for Jonathan Parker's recent (Untitled), the award-winning documentary The Woodmans, and the string arrangements for the soundtrack to Requiem for a Dream, performed by the Kronos Quartet.
In addition to his work as a composer, Lang co-founded Bang on a Can, a prominent new music festival in New York. He is Professor of composition at the Yale School of Music.
