Matthew Guerrieri

Sudbury, MA   

Matthew Guerrieri is a musician and writer whose work explores a wide range of music—classical, jazz, pop, avant-garde and early music, opera and music for dance—in search of surprising connections not just between disparate genres of music, but between music and currents of thought in history, politics, philosophy, and science. He regularly has written about music for the Boston Globe and NewMusicBox, and his articles have also appeared in Vanity Fair, The American Scholar, Playbill, Musical America, and Slate. He is the author of The First Four Notes: Beethoven’s Fifth and the Human Imagination (Alfred A. Knopf, 2012). He is currently working on a history of music of the 1950s.

Guerrieri holds degrees in music from DePaul and Boston University, and was a composition fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center. He lives in Massachusetts.
