(1896 - 1985)

A pupil of Ernest Bloch in New York, Roger Sessions went on to spend time in Europe, where he met Berg, Stravinsky, Schoenberg and Milhaud. He established himself in America as a distinguished teacher, notably at Princeton where he spent a number of years, at Berkeley, and at the Juilliard School. He won the American Prix de Rome, among many other awards, and did much to develop new musical trends in America.

Orchestral Music

Sessions wrote nine symphonies, concertos for violin and for piano, and a Concerto for violin and cello. His music reflects the influence of Bloch and then of Stravinsky and Schoenberg.

Chamber Music

Chamber music by Sessions includes three string quartets, a String Quintet, Canons for string quartet, in memory of Stravinsky, a Violin Sonata and Six Pieces for cello.
