WALTER S. HARTLEY was born in 1927 in Washington DC. He began composing at age 5 and was seriously dedicated to it by his 16th year. All his degrees are from the Eastman School of Music and University of Rochester. Dr. Hartley’s teachers included Howard Hanson, Bernard Rogers, and Burrill Phillips.
Hartley taught at colleges in 5 states and is now composer-in-residence and Professor Emeritus at State University College, Fredonia, NY; he also taught piano and composition at Interlochen from 1956 to 1964.
His music has been played by leading orchestras, bands, ensembles, and soloists around the world, and much of his music has entered the standard literature, particularly for saxophone and low brass. Dr. Hartley’s music has earned many commissions and prizes, and much of it is commercially recorded.
