- New York, NY (1888PressRelease) February 16, 2012 - James Cohn, President of XLNT Music, Inc., has been selected as an Honored Member of the Biltmore Who's Who Executive and Professional Registry. The selection recognizes James Cohn's commitment to excellence in Entertainment.
Cohn, who holds a Bachelor's Degree and Master's Degree in Music, both from The Julliard School of Music, has been studying music since he was a child, and was influenced by such composers as Beethoven, Cesar Franck, Schuman, Schubert, Dvorak, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, among others.
Founded to publish his own music, XLNT Music, Inc. is where Cohn creates new music and composes for singers and instrumentalists, specializing in concert music, vocal music and instrumental music for radio, television and cinema. Having studied at Julliard, he learned to play many different music instruments which now enables him to write for entire symphony orchestras and do background music for film and television. Cohn has been a professional composer for almost sixty years now.
"I have loved classical music since I was a very young child," Cohn said. "There was always music in my home. My mother, who wished to become a professional musician, and who was also my first piano teacher, performed in local concerts and served as an accompanist to local vocalists."
Hoping to continue composing and fulfilling the various commissions that come his way, Cohn has been blessed with a very long and healthy career in music. Soon approaching his eighty-fourth birthday, he knows and appreciates the good fortune and successes he has earned along the way.
Cohn is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. He is the recipient of numerous awards over the years, including a Queen Elizabeth of Belgium Prize in 1953 for his second symphony. He also received an AIDEM Prize in Italy for his fourth symphony which was broadcast over the Italian Radio Network and heard all over Europe. His opera, entitled The Fall of the City, which was premiered in Athens, Ohio, also won an award from the University of Ohio. In addition, Cohn was given a commission by the McKim Fund administered by the Library of Congress in DC for his Concerto Da Camera.
