Doron Kima “utilizes some extremely arresting musical gestures and makes good use of jazzy rhythms, with effective use of contrasts between sections. The composer is clearly in control of the material and instruments”

- The American Prize Composition Competition

ABOUT

Dr. Doron Kima is a composer, pianist, and music lecturer. His music reflects his musical background, including Western classical, jazz, and Arabic music, culminating in a unique musical voice.

 

As a composer, Doron's music spans from symphonic and chamber ensemble compositions to jazz. His compositions are published by Schott Music Corporation, Navona Records with worldwide commercial distribution by Naxos, and AudioMaze Records with worldwide commercial distribution by The Orchard. The world premiere of his concerto-type composition Seeds of Hope for nay (Arabic flute), oud (Arabic lute), and symphony orchestra took place in St. Paul's cathedral in Mdina, Malta with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra featuring Syrian nay player Bashir Abdel Al, Palestinian oud player Nizar Al Issa, and French conductor Raoul Lay as part of their Notes of Faith Concert during the Mdina Cathedral Contemporary Art Biennale. His piece Dialogue for solo organ was commissioned by organist Cal Johnson. The world premiere took place at the Redeemer's Episcopal Church in Amman, Jordan.

 

As a pianist, Doron recorded/performed with Deborah Brown, Carl Allen, Mike Stern, Marcus Printup, and Vincent Gardner, among others. His works as a pianist are published by Mercury Records (collaboration with Cross-Fade productions, Netherlands) and Bald Wins Records. He performed at major festivals including the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, the North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland, and the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Israel, as well as other festivals in the US, Belguim, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal, and Israel.

 

As an academic, Doron earned his doctorate in composition from Florida State University and served as a Visiting Scholar at the University of California, Berkeley. Doron is currently the Academic Coordinator, Coordinator of Musical Projects, and a Senior Lecturer at the Jonathan Wohl School of Music at Ono Academic College in Israel.
