Leon Kirchner, serious composer (1919-2009)



Leon Kirchner (January 24, 1919 – September 17, 2009) was an American composer of contemporary classical music. G. Schirmer, Inc./Associated Music Publishers and the Music Sales Group are saddened to announce the passing of Leon Kirchner.

Leon Kirchner has made an indelible mark on contemporary music through his own remarkable style — in his words, "an artist must create a personal cosmos, a verdant world...powered by conviction and necessity." Like Arnold Schoenberg, his mentor, Kirchner weaved the past and the present, creating music that masterfully conveys our contemporary world.
