(1925 - 2015)

The son of a German-born string player in the New York Philharmonic, Günther Schuller was appointed principal horn in the Cincinnati Symphony at the age of 17, later to hold a similar position at the Metropolitan Opera. Originally self-taught as a composer, he was drawn both to the music of Schoenberg and to jazz. He also had a distinguished career as a conductor, writer, teacher and producer.


Schuller was a prolific composer, contributing to most forms of music, from opera and ballet to orchestral and chamber music, in a musical language reflecting the influence of Schoenberg and Stravinsky.
