Stephen Albert Collection
Stephen Albert (1941-1992) was an American composer and teacher. Graduating from the Philadelphia Musical Academy with a BM in 1962, he received commissions from notable American Orchestras including the Philadelphia Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, and the Seattle Symphony. He worked as a teacher, one of his most notable positions being at the Juilliard School. James Joyce inspired much of Alberts later music, yet two of his most well known compositions are his Cello Concerto (1990), for which he received a Grammy Award, and his symphony RiverRun (1992-93), which won the Pulitzer Prize. Included in the collection are Alberts published and unpublished scores, manuscripts, correspondence, personal files, photographs, books, and musical instruments.
