Eric Moe, Senior Composer on the Music Faculty at the University of Pittsburgh


Bradley, Carol June, Notes


Eric Moe, senior composer on the music faculty at the University of Pittsburgh, has donated his music manuscripts to the university's Theodore M. Finney Music Library (James P. Cassaro, Head Librarian). The collection includes sketches, fair copies, and computer-generated holographs of the composer's works from the late 1970s to the present, including that of No Time Like the Present (1996), a commission from Mariss Jansons and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. Moe's generous donation will allow generations of scholars to study his works from initial conception to final product. Eric Moe has been characterized by the New York Times as a composer of "music of winning exuberance." He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Rhonda and Walter Lakond Award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2002), a Guggenheim Fellowship, and grants from the Fromm Foundation, Meet-the-Composer USA, and the Koussevitzky Foundation, among others. The composer has been in residence at the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, Bellagio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Millay Colony for the Arts, Ragdale Foundation, Montana Artists Refuge, and American Dance Festival. His Sonnets to Orpheus was featured on the Works & Process series at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2000.
