Czernowin, Chaya (Komposition)

Born 1957 in Haifa, is a composer of operas orchestral and chamber works which have been played worldwide. She was composer in residence in Salzburg festival, and Lucerne Festival. She is Walter Bigelow Rosen Professor of Music at Harvard University and was a Professor for Composition at the University for Music and Performing Arts Vienna Austria and the university of  California San Diego.

Czernowin works imaginatively and analytically with metaphors as a means of reaching a sound world which is unfamiliar and is never taken for granted attempting to give a voice to what is internally hidden from one’s view. Main pieces: the opera Pnima, the orchestral piece Maim (50’), and HIDDEN (45') for quartet and electronics.


Czernowin’s work was awarded the Composer Prize of Siemens Foundation, Guggenheim fellowship, Fromm, and Kranichsteiner Musikpreis at Darmstadt Ferienkurse, and many others. Her work is published by Schott Music.
