Christopher Trapani, composer
GLISSANDO is happy to present the award-winning composer Christopher Trapani, who maintains an active career in the United States, the United Kingdom, and in Continental Europe. His music synthesizes disparate influences, weaving both American and European strands into a personal aesthetic that defies early classification. In his music, diverse traditions coexist and intermingle, swirled into a rich melting pot, as they do in his hometown of New Orleans.
Mr. Trapani’s honors include a Fulbright grant, the 2007 Gaudeamus Prize, and the 2016-17 Luciano Berio Rome Prize. His work is featured on a portrait CD on New Focus Recordings, with performances by Talea Ensemble, JACK Quartet, singer Lucy Dhegrae, and pianist Marilyn Nonken.
