Charles Ives Fellowship

I have been awarded one of two 2018 Charles Ives Fellowships from the The American Academy of Arts and Letters. Read the press release here. The Academy's generous citation read as follows:

Peter Van Zandt Lane is a skillful and versatile composer whose music continues to evolve at lightning speed. At every turn, his propulsive, incisive work is beautifully and confidently made. Characterized by driving rhythms, bold harmonic gestures, and whimsical melodies, Mr. Lane's music is as inviting as it is sophisticated. The darkly colorful trombone concerto 'Radix Tyrannis' presents an alluring, unique narrative; its overall design is strong and sure.

Current Projects

I am currently completing a work for wind ensemble and electronics entitled Echo Chambers, commissioned by a consortium of over 50 wind ensembles lead by Pacific Lutheran University Wind Ensemble director Edwin Powell. You can read more about the piece here, or check out the video update to the consortium participants on the work-in-progress below:
