Performer, educator, and founder of the New School of Music in Cambridge, MA. Nicholas Van Slyck's music has been performed to audience and critical acclaim throughout Europe and the U.S.
Van Slyck's compositions range from large scale orchestra and chorus works to short duos and trios for winds and strings. There is an abundance of keyboard music: solo and four hand, sonatas, suites and concertos, as well as music suitable for teaching.
Although much of Van Slyck's music was published by E. C. Schirmer, Willis, Southern, and General Music Publishing companies during his lifetime, when he passed away in 1983, he left behind many works that were never published. These works are now being published by Van Slyck 20th Century Music and are available for purchase on this website in the form of printed sheet music or as PDF files.
It is one of the goals of this website to serve as a resource for the music of Nicholas Van Slyck in both printed and audio form. All of his published music is listed here, as well as available recordings.
