Boston, MA – The Center for New Music at the Boston University College of Fine Arts welcomes lauded Italian composer of avante-garde classical music, Salvatore Sciarrino, for a three week residency — February 18 – March 2, and March 25–31, 2013.

“Salvatore Sciarrino is one of a handful of truly game-changing composers for the last 100 years,” said Josh Fineberg, Director of the Center for New Music at the College of Fine Arts at Boston University. “He rarely leaves his home in Cittá di Castello, and we feel deeply honored that he has agreed to spend three weeks at the College of Fine arts as the inaugural resident composer for our Center for New Music.”

Sciarrino’s residency includes a concert series with a rich variety of visiting ensembles and composers including [sound icon] and Jack Quartet, as well as Boston University’s Time’s Arrow New Music Ensemble and BU Symphony Orchestra. As part of his residency, Sciarrino will work closely with students, both performers and composers, and engage with artists and students in the Boston area and beyond. In additional to pedagogical events for students and artists, Salvatoe Sciarrino will host three Composer’s Forum Lectures, sharing his music in his own words.
