It is my extreme pleasure to announce that PR Perfect got hired to represent David Ludwig, one of the most talented, versatile, and up-and-coming composers in the region!
I met David during the audio recording session of his choral music album by Choral Arts Philadelphia last year. When the recording came out, we plotted for a while how it could be promoted. Then, in June of 2013, quite by a serendipity, I was asked by LocalArtsLive’s Sharon Torello to do a series of videos with David for a composer profile Sharon was planning that summer. So, we met in his historical office at The Curtis Institute for an hour and a half, and I got to torture David by making him answer my questions in front of a video camera about all things interesting, like his thoughts on modern classical music, music for movies, his family history and his upcoming bassoon concerto premiere with the Philadelphia Orchestra. And then David invited me to attend the concerto premiere at the Kimmel Center. The beautiful and dreamy music from David’s “Pictures from the Floating World” is still sounding in my head, and it is my high hope that the Orchestra will find the means to eventually record this piece they commissioned so it can be shared with the world.
In each of my encounters with David, I have been touched by his friendly and unassuming demeanor, his open and accessible nature, and his sincerity. And how he remains so humble, while great milestones and achievements add up to decorate his CV. Some of these are things that even seasoned composers often only dream of.
It is for the moments like this that I love my work in public relations. It brings amazing new people into my life, and it takes me to amazing new places that I might never have otherwise visited. There is so much to learn from each and every one of these experiences. I never stop to be grateful for it.
I’m looking forward to bringing you some news about David’s upcoming projects soon. Stay tuned!
