Ricky Ian Gordon

1956 -

Ricky Ian Gordon writes vocal music that spans arts songs, opera, and musical theater. In 2001, the New York Times said, “If the music of Ricky Ian Gordon had to be defined by a single quality, it would be the bursting effervescence infusing songs that blithely blur the lines between art song and the high-end Broadway music of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim.”
