Recipient of the prestigious Grawemeyer Award in 2007, Sebastian Currier represents the finest in American composition. * He has received many other awards including the Berlin Prize, Rome Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, and an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. * Currier's music has been enthusiastically embraced by violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, who commissioned and premiered his violin and piano piece Aftersong, and violin concerto, Time Machines. * Members of the Berlin Philharmonic dedicated a full evening to Currier's extensive chamber music output in October 2005, including the premieres of Remix for mixed ensemble and Crossfade for two harps.

Works by Sebastian Currier include:
Time Machines (2007) for violin and orchestra
Piano Concerto (2006) for piano and orchestra
Nightmaze (2005) for chamber ensemble
Next Atlantis (2008) for string quartet

Looking Ahead: Sebastian Currier’s intimate work for violin and double bass, Ringtone Variations, written for Anne-Sophie Mutter and Roman Patkoló, gets its US premiere this November at Carnegie Hall.
