Edward Lein (b.1955) lives in Jacksonville, Florida, and holds Master’s degrees in Music (major professor: John Boda) and Library Science from Florida State University. As a tenor soloist (now retired) he has appeared in recitals, oratorios and dramatic works, and drawing on his performance experience the majority of his compositions have been vocal works. He endeavors to imbue his instrumental pieces with a similar singing lyricism and typically avoids the intentionally artificial techniques of the Modernism that dominated the concert music of his youth, instead favoring a more spontaneous approach. Recent performances of orchestral works, including "Meditation" for cello, oboe and orchestra (premiered by the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra in June 2006) and "In the Bleak Midwinter" (premiered by the Jacksonville Symphony Players in December 2007), have demonstrated this aesthetic.
