About

Armed with a diverse spectrum of repertoire and eclectic musical interests, saxophonist Eliot Gattegno is a dedicated performer of the music of our time.

In 2008, he became the first saxophonist and one of the few Americans to ever win the “Kranichsteiner Musikpreis” of the International Music Institute Darmstadt, widely considered the most prestigious prize for the interpretation of new music.

Equally comfortable with traditional repertoire, Eliot has been invited to the Marlboro, Tanglewood and Yellow Barn Music Festivals and performed with James Levine, Michael Tilson Thomas, and Kurt Masur.

Previously a Fellow at Harvard University, he holds a doctorate from the University of California, San Diego and is a graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy and New England Conservatory.

A Selmer Paris and Rico Performing Artist, he lives in New York and Chengdu, China where he is Professor of Saxophone at the Sichuan Conservatory of Music.
