Architecture, Resonance, Space and Music: Reanimating the Music of la Chiesa di Sant’ Aniceto a Palazzo Altemps, in Rome

Described as “gripping” by both the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune, “poignant”, “richly evocative” (SF Chronicle), “taut, and hauntingly beautiful” (NY Times), Jonathan Berger’s works deal with both consciousness and conscience.
Recent commissions include The National Endowment for the Arts, The Mellon Foundations, and Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. His opera My Lai (commissioned by The National Endowment, the Gerbode Foundation, and Harris Theatre for the Kronos Quartet, Rinde Eckert and Van Anh Vo) will tour internationally next season, and his song cycle, Rime Sparse, (composed at AAR) premiers this March in Lincoln Center.
In addition to composing, Berger is an active researcher whose work ranges from music perception and cognition to auditory display.
Berger is the Denning Family Provostial Professor in Music at Stanford University. He is currently the Elliot Carter Rome Prize Fellow and a Guggenheim Fellow.
