John Huggler (1928-1992): Sculptures for Soprano and Orchestra (Op. 39)

John Huggler was a Boston-based composer of orchestral works, chamber music pieces and songs. He was also a talented jazz musician who taught composition theory and the history of jazz at Boston's University of Massachusetts for 25 years.

Born in Rochester, New York, Huggler was a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and earned advanced degrees at Cornell University among others. Huggler was well-known for his getting together impromptu for frequent jazz jam sessions.

The Sculptures for Soprano and Orchestra, not a jazz piece, comes from 1964. This is the first performance on November 13, 1964 with Erick Leinsdorf conducting the Boston Symphony Orchestra with Bethany Beardslee, soprano.
