HARBISON: Chamber Music

Born in 1938 into a musical family, John Harbison studied at Harvard, and with Roger Sessions at Princeton. He is one of America’s most accomplished musicians, with four symphonies, three operas and a Pulitzer Prize-winning cantata to his credit. Harbison’s music is distinguished by its exceptional range, from the blues-influenced settings of Elizabeth Bishop’s poetry in North and South, to the use of eastern modes in his Book of Hours and Seasons. John Harbison’s Four Songs of Solitude are available on Naxos 8.559173.
