The 2020–2021 Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair
Called the “leading American composer of his generation” (Los Angeles Times) and “master of a uniquely dazzling and mercurial style” (The New Yorker), Andrew Norman is one of the most sought-after voices in American classical music. Musical America’s 2017 Composer of the Year, his music surprises, delights, and thrills with its visceral power and intricate structures. Fascinated by how technology has changed the ways in which we think, feel, act, and perceive, Norman writes music that is both a reflection of—and refuge from—our fast and fragmented world. Striking colors, driving energy, and an underlying lyricism are all present in the work of a composer who defies traditional labels.
