“Andrew Norman … is at the moment based in Los Angeles, but not for long,” writes Susan Elliott in Wednesday’s (2/26) Musical America (subscription required). “He will be relocating to New York to take on two major appointments next season: To hold the Debs Composer’s Chair at Carnegie Hall and become the newest member of the Juilliard School college composition faculty. He joins an august group, chaired by Melinda Wagner and including Robert Beaser, John Corigliano, and Matthias Pintscher. Recently he’s been the director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Composer Fellowship Program for high school composers…. Norman’s accolades are many: the 2017 Grawemeyer Award for his orchestral work Play, a 2019 Pulitzer Prize finalist for Sustain, the recording of which by the Los Angeles Philharmonic received a Grammy award last month, and commissions by major ensembles and conductors. Norman, 40, joined the faculty of the USC’s Thornton School of Music, his alma mater, in 2013.”
