Mitchell As Artist
Mitchell Korn was one of the world’s first concert 12-string guitarists. As a soloist and with his New York based Mitchell Korn
Ensemble he performed (1975-89) internationally, at festivals, museums, universities, and at important concert halls including
Carnegie Hall and Blossom Festival, and with great artists including Doc Watson and Count Basie. He received numerous Meet the Composer grants and wrote nearly two dozen scores for dance, film and theater.
The New York Times said his music was” intricate, rich…warmed the ear.” The Wisconsin Capital Times wrote: “He has thoroughly mastered the instrument except it seems more like symbiosis.” The Buffalo Evening News said “his music is refreshing as fine wine, an evening memorable for music hedonists.” And Dance Magazine described his music “as so melodiously inventive and theatrically exciting.”
