Biography

Geoffrey Gordon Composer


Geoffrey Gordon’s list of works includes orchestral and chamber music—vocal and instrumental—as well as scores for theater, film and dance. His music has been called “brilliant” (Philadelphia Inquirer), “stunning” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel), “wonderfully idiomatic” (Salt Lake Tribune), “haunting” (Strings Magazine) and “remarkable” (Fanfare). Chicago Tribune music critic John von Rhein called Mr. Gordon’s lux solis aeterna, premiered in January of this year by the new music ensemble Fulcrum Point, “a cosmic beauty … of acutely crafted music.”

A 2009 winner of the Aaron Copland Award, Mr. Gordon will be a composer-in-residence at the Aaron Copland House beginning in January, 2009. His work has been funded by the Barlow Endowment, the National Endowment for the Arts, the United Performing Arts Fund, the American Composers Forum, Meet the Composer, the MacArthur Foundation, the American Music Center, the Abelson Foundation, the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust and the Bush Foundation. He has been in residence at the La Napoule Arts Foundation in Cannes, and at the historic Cliff Dweller Club in Chicago. He has been nominated for the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Elise Stoeger Prize, which honors achievement in chamber music composition; in 2003, he received the WI State Fellowship in Music Composition. He has received academic fellowship support from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Boston University, New York University and the Guildhall in London.

    Join me for premieres in New York and Boston in May, 2009! The Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) will give the world premiere of Shock Diamonds, a new work for large orchestra, commissioned by Meet the Composer, in Boston on May 22. One day earlier, the Parker String Quartet will premiere Ink On Paper, a new work for string quartet commissioned by the Concert Artists Guild and Meet the Composer, in New York City, at Symphony Space. Hope to see you there!
