Fred Kaufman
The Dranoff International Two Piano Foundation - Frederick Kaufman Fredrick Kaufman Fredrick Kaufman is the composer of over one hundred and twenty published compositions and ballets that have been performed worldwide. His concerti and chamber music has been widely recorded. Kaufman is a former Fulbright Scholar, and author of The African Roots of Jazz, a groundbreaking study that drew heavily on his early musical life as a jazz trumpet player. He is the recipient of the Darius Milhaud Award in Composition from the Aspen Music Festival, and honors and fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Rockefeller, Guggenheim and Ford Foundations, the California, Montana and Pennsylvania Arts Councils as well as the Norwegian Government. Fredrick Kaufman's Holocaust compositions have been described as "having the most expressive writing for strings to be heard today," (Bernard Holland of The New York Times). In 1985, the Statue of Liberty committee commissioned Fredrick Kaufman to write a choral work Mother of Exiles, for the re-dedication ceremonies of the Statue of Liberty. The composition was premiered by the United Nations Chorus at the ceremony and was broadcast worldwide by network television. In 1997, the Miami Herald voted Maestro Fredrick Kaufman one of the 10 most influential people in the arts in the city of Miami. Kaufman continues to circle the globe conducting performances of his works. Recent destinations include Taiwan, Hong Kong, Spain, Poland, France and Brazil. The points of departure for Kaufman's writing are often gestures and sound imagery from his own wide ranging background which includes jazz and Eastern European Jewish folk traditions and a foundation deeply steeped in the classics as well as the avant garde. Kaufman continues to stretch the boundaries of standard approaches to composition and the results have been startling. Fredrick Kaufman currently resides in Miami Beach where he holds the distinguished position as Composer-in-Residence at Florida International University. Prior to that he was Director of the FIU School of Music for ten years and established its internationally acclaimed Music Festival. Kaufman is the founder and former Artistic Director of the St. Cyprien International Festival of the Arts held in St. Cyprien, France.

FIU presents a superb musical tribute to Fred Kaufman at 80
During his decade as director of the FIU School of Music, Kaufman brought prominent musicians to the southwest Miami campus as faculty members and guest master class instructors. He also directed an annual music festival at the school that featured well-known guest artists and challenging repertoire. The concert also featured a video excerpt from Kaminarimon, Kaufman's remarkably imaginative fusion of Japanese taiko drumming and Latin flamenco dance. Kudos to producer Karen Fuller for the professionalism and smooth coordination of the program and the exceptionally fine program booklet which included comments by Kaufman on all the works performed and bios of the individual artists (as well as a sketch of the composer by his wife Florence). The entire evening was a well-deserved tribute to Kaufman for his distinguished compositional output and important contribution to both FIU and South Florida's cultural life.
