Joseph Schwantner

Joseph SchwantnerReconnu pour son style remarquable et unique et sa virtuosité comme coloriste orchestral, Joseph Schwantner est un des éminents compositeurs américains de notre époque. Il a suivi sa formation musicale et universitaire au Conservatoire de Chicago et à l’Université Northwestern, et il a enseigné à la Juilliard School, la Eastman School of Music et la Yale School of Music, tout en s’imposant comme un maître de composition très recherché. Sa carrière de compositeur a été marquée par de multiples prix, subventions et bourses de perfectionnement, notamment le prix Pulitzer en 1979 pour sa composition orchestrale Aftertones of Infinity et plusieurs nominations aux Grammy. Parmi les nombreuses commandes qu’on lui a faites figure son Percussion Concerto, commandé pour le 150e anniversaire de l’Orchestre philharmonique de New York et une des œuvres concertantes les plus interprétées de la dernière décennie. Schwantner est membre de l’American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Sa musique est publiée exclusivement par la Schott Helicon Music Corporation et enregistrée sur les étiquettes RCA Red Seal/BMG, Hyperion, Naxos, Koch International Classics, EMI/Virgin, Sony, Delos, New World Records, Klavier et Innova. Ses récentes commandes comprennent des œuvres pour le 75e anniversaire du National Symphony Orchestra, eighth blackbird, Flute Force, une œuvre pour flûte et piano en hommage au regretté flûtiste Sam Baron, et un Concerto for Percussion Section, Timpani and Orchestra pour la Percussive Arts Society et l’Orchestre symphonique d’Indianapolis, afin de souligner le 50e anniversaire de cette société.
