About Gunther Schuller

Conductor, horn player, editor, virtuoso orchestrator, teacher and many things besides, Schuller has enjoyed a full career as musical polymath even before adding the role of self-taught composer who in 1957 devised 'third-stream' music, fusing serialism and jazz improvisation.  One of the most admired of American composers outside his native land, he is a natural experimenter who in The Visitation of 1966 also produced one of the most controversial and provocative of post-war American operas.
