Judd Greenstein is an American composer of structurally complex, viscerally engaging works for varied instrumentation. A passionate advocate for the independent new music community across the United States, Judd’s philosophy as both composer and curator involves the creation and promotion of music that is an organic blend of multiple styles, sounds, and instruments, open to all influences.
Standout groups that reflect this polyglot sensibility, including yMusic and Roomful of Teeth, counted Judd among their earliest commissions and continue to perform his work to this day. Recently, Judd has been increasingly in demand as a composer from major institutions such as the Minnesota Orchestra, the North Carolina Symphony, and the Lucerne Festival, among many others. Current projects include an opera about Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs, a flute concerto for Alex Sopp and the Knights, and a ballet inspired by this summer’s solar eclipse in Idaho.
Judd is a founding member of NOW Ensemble, the composer/performer collective, and is the co-director of New Amsterdam Records, an artists' service organization that supports post-genre musicians in developing their most personal new projects. He is the curator of New York’s Ecstatic Music Festival, an annual showcase of new collaborative concerts between artists from different musical worlds, and co-curates the Apples & Olives festival in Zurich, Switzerland.
