JOHN HARBISON  

(b 1938 )

John Harbison studied at Harvard, Princeton and in Berlin with Boris Blacher. Harbison has been professor of music at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1969 and has also taught at CalArts, Boston University, Duke University and Aspen Music Festival.

He received the 1987 Pulitzer Prize in Music for his cantata The Flight into Egypt, a MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Fellowship in 1989, Heinz Award for Arts and Humanities in 1998, and numerous other awards and fellowships.

His residencies include Tanglewood, Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, American Academy in Rome, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.

In addition to many orchestral, chamber and vocal compositions, Harbison wrote The Great Gatsby for the Metropolitan Opera, which was premiered to great acclaim in 1999 and has since been performed in Chicago, Aspen, San Francisco, Tanglewood, and Dresden, and revived by the Met.

John Harbison is also active as a conductor, jazz pianist, and chamber music violist.
