About Composer Geoffrey Gordon

Geoffrey Gordon’s list of works includes orchestral and chamber music–vocal and instrumental–as well as scores for theater, film and dance. His music has been called “brilliant” (Philadelphia Inquirer), “stunning” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel), “wonderfully idiomatic” (Salt Lake Tribune), “haunting” (Strings Magazine) and “remarkable” (Fanfare). Chicago Tribune music critic John von Rhein called Mr. Gordon’s lux solis aeterna, premiered in January of this year by the new music ensemble Fulcrum Point, “a cosmic beauty … of acutely crafted music.”
