The music of Frank Stemper has been performed by orchestras, ensembles, and soloists in 23 countries and two-thirds of the United States — in Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Budapest’s Pannonhalma, Vienna’s Klaviersalon Englemier, Chicago’s Symphony Center, Bucharest’s Anteil Roman, San Francisco’s Cowell Theater, Milwaukee’s Performing Arts Center, etc., and has been heard on International Radio Networks throughout Europe.

His work as a composer has been supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Illinois Arts Council, the New York Council on the Arts, the California Arts Council, Meet the Composer and MTC—Global Connections, the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, and the governments of Mexico, Romania, Spain, Austria, and The Netherlands. And he has received 33 commissions for new work from various new music foundations and societies throughout the world.

Among the many awards and prizes for his music are the 1981 George Ladd Prix de Paris, four artist fellowships from the Illinois Arts Council, 26 consecutive ASCAPlus awards, etc., as well as nominations for both the Grammy and Pulitzer Prizes.  BLUE13, a recently released recording of Stemper’s complete music for piano, performed by the Korean pianist Junghwa Lee, received a Gold Medal and was voted No. 4 in Global Music’s “Top 10 Albums of 2015.”

Through his multiple artist and teaching residencies in Mexico, Romania, Spain, The Netherlands, and France, as well as more than 50 Guest Composer appearances at international festivals, his music has maintained a presence on the world new music scene. His mentors were composer Andrew Imbrie, theorist David Lewin, and pianist Robert Silverman, and from 1983 to 2014 he served as

Composer In Residence at Southern Illinois University.

 

His music is an eclectic blending of the serial composers and jazz performers from the middle 50 years of the 20th Century.

Recordings of Stemper’s music are commercially available on Albany Records, Prestige, Centaur, Advanced, Reception, Opus One, Soundcloud, and I-Tunes.  Scores, parts, and other related performance materials, as well as recordings not available commercially, are available through this website.
