Michael Hersch (b1971)

Born in Washington D.C. in 1971, Michael Hersch first came to wider attention over ten years ago when at age twenty-five he was awarded First Prize in the American Composers Awards. The award resulted in a performance of his Elegy (1994) at Alice Tully Hall conducted by Marin Alsop in early 1997. Later that year he became one of the youngest recipients ever of a Guggenheim Fellowship in Composition.  Mr. Hersch has also been the recipient of the Rome Prize (2000), the Berlin Prize (2001) and both the Charles Ives Scholarship (1996) and Goddard Lieberson Fellowship (2006) from the American Academy of Arts & Letters.

His work has been conducted in the USA and internationally under conductors including Mariss Jansons, Marin Alsop, Robert Spano, Alan Gilbert, James DePriest, Carlos Kalmar, and Gerard Schwarz, among others. His music increasingly recorded. A disc of Mr. Hersch's orchestral works, including his Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2, was released in the fall of 2006 with Marin Alsop conducting the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra on the Naxos American Classics series.
