Green Mountain Composition

Michael S. Rothkopf

Michael S. Rothkopf has composed over 45 works of chamber, electronic, orchestral and vocal music. His compositions have been noted for their "remarkable sensuousness" and their evocative ability to create a "sense of time and occasion." Recent works have focused on creating interactive music involving digital technology and artificial intelligence as part of the compositional design. Published by American Composers Editions, Dr. Rothkopf’s music has been performed throughout the United States by notable musicians and ensembles such as Ulrich Eichenauer, Tara Helen O’Connor, William Anderson, Jean Kopperud, Debra Reuter-Pivetta, Theresa Radomski, Brooks Whitehouse, Lachezar Kostov, Kevin Lawrence, Steven LaCosse the Cygnus Ensemble and the NOA Orchestra. He has been awarded fellowships from Yaddo, Carnegie Hall, the National Orchestra Association and Columbia University.
