Diamond, David Leo


Diamond, David Leo
▪ 2006

      American composer (b. July 9, 1915, Rochester, N.Y.—d. June 13, 2005, Rochester), left a large body of works that included 11 symphonies, 10 string quartets, and many songs. His music was characterized by its classic structures and its strong melodic sense. Diamond studied with Nadia Boulanger in Paris in 1937, and his early works, from the 1940s, were met with wide acclaim. With the rise of atonality and serialism, however, his reputation suffered, although beginning in the 1980s there was a revival of interest in his music. From 1973 to 1997 Diamond taught composition at the Juilliard School in New York City.
