(b 1945 )

David Schiff’s name is familiar not only as a fine composer, but as a perceptive contributor to the Sunday New York Times Arts & Leisure section and Atlantic Monthly, where his writings demonstrate a deep and thought-provoking knowledge of musical subjects. He studied English literature at Columbia and Cambridge universities, while his teachers at Juilliard and the Manhattan School of Music included Roger Smalley, John Corigliano, Ursula Mamlok and Elliott Carter. He subsequently published a biography of Carter (1983, revised 1998), and Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue in 1997. Schiff is a professor of music at Reed College in Portland, Oregon.
