Biography
John Corigliano by J. Henry Fair

John Corigliano continues to add to one of the richest, most unusual, and most widely celebrated bodies of work any composer has created over the last 40 years. His scores, now numbering more than 100, have garnered the Pulitzer Prize, Grawemeyer Award, five Grammy Awards, and an Academy Award, and have been performed and recorded by the world’s prominent orchestras, soloists, and chamber musicians. Recent scores include Rhymes for the Irreverent and no comet ever scratched the sky for baritone and piano (2017); One Sweet Morning (2011), a four-movement song cycle premiered by the New York Philharmonic and Stephanie Blythe; Conjurer (2008), for percussion and string orchestra, commissioned for and introduced by Evelyn Glennie; Concerto for Violin and Orchestra: The Red Violin (2005), developed the film score for which he won an Oscar in 1999; Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of Bob Dylan (2000) for orchestra and amplified soprano (2008 Grammy for Best Contemporary Composition); Symphony No. 3: Circus Maximus (2004), scored simultaneously for wind orchestra and a multitude of wind ensembles; and Symphony No. 2 (2001 Pulitzer Prize in Music). Other important scores include String Quartet (1995, Grammy Award, Best Contemporary Composition), Symphony No. 1 (1991, Grawemeyer Award), The Ghosts of Versailles (Metropolitan Opera commission, 1991), and Clarinet Concerto (1977). In 2015 an orchestral version of Stomp was commissioned by the Houston Symphony. In 2015 Los Angeles Opera received acclaim for its new production of The Ghosts of Versailles; directed by Tony Award–winner Darko Tresnjac, the cast included Patricia Racette, Christopher Maltman, and Patti LuPone, and it won two Grammy Awards. John Corigliano’s music has been performed throughout the U.S., across Europe, and in Caracas, Melbourne, Shanghai, Beijing, Russia, Tokyo, Krakow, Toronto, Bosnia, and beyond. His 80 birthday is celebrated in 2018 with performances far and wide.
