Biography

John Corigliano is an American composer of classical music. The son of a violinist, studied at Columbia University, before embarking on a varied musical career. As a composer, his earlier works develop further the musical language of composers such as Samuel Barber, Aaron Copland and their contemporaries, followed by a period of wider experiment in the use of more varied musical materials. His opera The Ghosts of Versailles was staged at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 1992, when it was chosen for the Composition of the Year award of the International Music Awards. His film scores include the very popular The Red Violin of 1997

    Very interesting composer, I'm surprised that he's so underlistened.

    he has a lot more music than all this, like violin concertos, clarinet concerto, piano concerto, even flute concerto, and a lot of more orchestral pieces.

    Second Hallucination off of the Altered States OST is one of the most intense pieces of music ever created! Awesome!

    Still no entry... but he's so great. Most of the people seem to only know his work for "The Red Violin" though, which truly is wonderful, but I higly also recommend "Altered States"...
