About the Composer

Martin Alan BrodyCatherine Mills Davis Professor Emeritus of Music
Composer of concert music; historian of early modern music, especially music during the Cold War in relation to other arts.

Current projects include an orchestra piece (commissioned by the Boston Modern Orchestra Project) and two chamber operas, one based on a medieval poem about a werewolf, the other on a news story about a talking carp. Brody also writes about modern music, with a special focus on music during the Cold War, in particular the production, reception, and patronage of complex modern music and its political contexts.
