Share This Artist


Distinguished by The New York Times as “a leader of contemporary American lyricism”, composer Jonathan Leshnoff attracts audiences with his music’s gripping embrace of tonality. His compositions have earned international acclaim for their striking harmonies, structural complexity, and powerful themes.

The Baltimore-based composer’s works have been performed by more than 60 orchestras worldwide in hundreds of orchestral concerts. He has received commissions from Carnegie Hall, and orchestras including the Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Kansas City, and Nashville Symphonies, the Buffalo Philharmonic, and the IRIS and Philadelphia Orchestras. Leshnoff’s compositions have been performed by classical music’s most celebrated stars, such as Gil and Orli Shaham, Roberto Díaz, and Manuel Barrueco, and have been conducted and embraced by esteemed music directors including Marin Alsop, Giancarlo Guerrero, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Robert Spano, and Michael Stern.

Leshnoff has been ranked among the most performed living composers by American orchestras in recent seasons, and upcoming seasons are comparably active with musical activity and collaborations. Highlights for the 2018-19 season include the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s premiere of Leshnoff’s Concerto for Clarinet and Bassoon, and the start of a multi-year residency with the Fairfax Symphony. Orchestras from the Knoxville Symphony to the Colorado Springs Philharmonic also perform works from Leshnoff’s robust ouevre.
