(b 1966 )

Harold Meltzer was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1966, and grew up in Long Island. With his wife and two children he lives in the East Village of Manhattan, and teaches at Vassar College. The Barlow Endowment for Music Composition awarded him its 2008 Barlow Prize: a string quartet commission for the Avalon, Lydian, and Pacifica Quartets. His sextet Brion, previously commissioned by the Barlow Endowment, was a Finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in Music. Other support for his work includes the Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Charles Ives Fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

In the midst of his musical education—at Amherst College, Cambridge University, and the Yale School of Music—he attended Columbia Law School and practiced law for several years. While still in school he organized the ensemble SEQUITUR, and he remains its co-Artistic Director.
