(b 1947 )

Jack Gallagher is the Olive Williams Kettering Professor of Music at The College of Wooster in Ohio. He holds doctoral and master’s degrees in composition from Cornell University and the bachelor’s degree cum laude from Hofstra University. He studied composition with Elie Siegmeister, Robert Palmer and Burrill Phillips, participated in seminars with Karel Husa, Thea Musgrave and Ned Rorem, and in masterclasses with Aaron Copland, George Crumb and William Bolcom. His compositions are included on fifteen compact discs on the Musical Heritage Society, Capstone, Vienna Modern Masters, Summit Records, Promuse, Altissimo! and ERM labels. Publishers include Editions Bim, Lawson-Gould, Kalmus/Ludwig Masters Publications and Manduca Music Publications. Gallagher’s awards include recognition from the Ohio Arts Council, the Charles Ives Center for American Music, Meet the Composer, the Yaddo Corporation, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, The College of Wooster Henry Luce III Award for Distinguished Scholarship, and other organizations. As a producer, his recording for TNC Records of Messiaen’s Oiseaux exotiques with pianist Angelin Chang, conductor John McLaughlin Williams and the Cleveland Chamber Symphony won a 2006 GRAMMY® Award in the classical category “Best Instrumental Soloist Performance with Orchestra.” More information about his music may be found at: www.JackGallagherMusic.com. Jack Gallagher’s first Naxos disc Orchestral Music (8.559652) with the LSO conducted by JoAnn Falletta was awarded five stars by both BBC Music Magazine and Audiophile Audition, which found his Symphony in One Movement: Threnody “truly a work of genius.” Hailed as “fresh and exuberant” by Gramophone, which noted its “explosions of sound and colour,” the work was described as “brilliantly orchestrated” by National Public Radio’s “Deceptive Cadence.”
