After nearly three decades at Eastman and a stint at the Juilliard School in the mid-1980s, Schwantner joined the Yale University faculty in 2001 as Professor of Music and Director of the Yale concert series ‘New Music New Haven’. In 2002, however, he left Yale in favour of the scenic hills and forests of New Hampshire. ‘I am now a freelance composer and love having my own schedule’, he says. Schwantner remains much in demand as a composer.
