Anthony Davis, professor of music at the University of California, San Diego, is an internationally known composer of operatic, symphonic, choral, and chamber works. He is also known for his virtuoso performances both as a solo pianist and as the leader of the ensemble Episteme, a unique ensemble of musicians who are disciplined interpreters as well as provocative improvisers. As a composer, Davis is best known for his operas. X, The Life and Times of Malcolm X, which played to sold-out houses at its premiere at the New York City Opera in 1986, received a Grammy Nomination for “Best Contemporary Classical Composition” in February 1993. Opera News has called Anthony Davis “a National Treasure” for his pioneering work in opera.
