July 14, birthday of Tommy Vig: Concerto for Clarinet, Vibraharp and Orchestra

Being 1/2 Hungarian, I had to choose Tommy Vig (July 14, 1938) for today’s composer. He was a prodigy who by 6 was playing drums in his father’s jazz band and later studied at the Bela Bartok conservatory. He’s had a rich career winning a scholarship to Julliard, writing for numerous tv and film productions, and also, oddly enough inventing the scientific method of Non-Subjective Valuing for which he holds a patent.
