Autorenporträt
About the Author: Gunther Schuller began his professional career in 1943, at age seventeen, when he played French horn with the Cincinnati Symphony and later served as first horn in the Metropolitan Opera. A prominent American composer, he has written a wide range of orchestral and chamber music, as well as jazz compositions. He coined the phrase "Third Stream" to indicate music that fuses concert music and jazz. As an educator, he was associated with the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood for over twenty years, mostly as its Artistic Director, and he was President of the New England Conservatory of Music from 1967 to 1977. He has published three previous books, Horn Technique (1962), Musings (1986), and Early Jazz: Its Roots and Musical Development (1968). And he has been a guest conductor with major orchestras throughout North America and Europe.
