Wes Matthews

Composer Wes Matthews is steadily gaining wider recognition for his work, with music praised for “passion and subtlety, marked by an arresting sincerity” (Lisa Bielawa) and “startling introspection, masterful development, and tremendous beauty…that effectively questions rather than declares and breathes as eloquently as it speaks” (Andrew Nogal, American Composers Forum/Minnesota Public Radio). Performances of his piece Terraces (“promising…moody…delicately threaded” [Jeremy Eichler, Boston Globe]) by the Boston Modern Orchestra Project and the Minnesota Orchestra under Osmo Vänskä, in addition to performances of his Chronicle for solo alto flute at the 2008 Bang on a Can Festival at MASS MoCA and his Saxophone Quartet No. 1 at the Grachtenfestival in Amsterdam, are among recent highlights for the emerging composer.
