|Boston-based composer Michael Gandolfi has a broad range of musical interests encompassing not only contemporary concert music
but also jazz, blues and rock, by which route he first became a musician. The span of his musical investigation is paralleled by his cultural
curiosity, resulting in many points of contact between the world of music and other disciplines, including science, film, and theater.
|Mr. Gandolfi has received commissions from the Atlanta Symphony, the Fromm Foundation, Boston Musica Viva, Speculum Musicae,
and the Koussevitzky Foundation, among many others.
|In addition to fulfilling commissions, Mr. Gandolfi also teaches: he’s currently chair of the Composition Department at the New England
Conservatory of Music and is a faculty member of the Tanglewood Music Center.
