Evan Johnson

Evan Johnson (b. 1980) is an American composer whose works are being commissioned and programmed with increasing frequency by prominent soloists and ensembles throughout the USA, Europe, and beyond, including at several prominent European festivals.  The recipient of numerous prizes, awards and fellowships, Johnson received his doctorate at SUNY Buffalo under David Felder after undergraduate work at Yale University.  His music emphasizes issues of temporal form, proportion and repetition, while also creating performative situations in which the physical, human aspects of musical performance are subtly paramount.
