Timothy McAllister

Saxophone

Biography

Today’s most celebrated classical saxophonist, Timothy McAllister has appeared with more than 40 of the world’s finest orchestras in more than 20 countries, from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra to the BBC Symphony at the Proms. He is a champion of contemporary music, credited with more than 50 recordings and premieres of 200 compositions by eminent and emerging composers worldwide. John Corigliano composed Triathlon: Concerto for Saxophonist and Orchestra for McAllister, who premiered the work with Giancarlo Guerrero and the San Francisco Symphony, followed by a recording with the Nashville Symphony (due for imminent release). Longtime collaborator Tyshawn Sorey wrote Adagio (For Wadada Leo Smith) for McAllister, which he premiered with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

McAllister premiered John Adams’s Saxophone Concerto with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. He received a Grammy Award for his recordings of the Adams concerto and Adams’s City Noir with the St. Louis Symphony and David Robertson. McAllister’s recording of Kenneth Fuchs’s Rush, with the London Symphony and JoAnn Falletta, won another Grammy, and his reprisal of Adams’s City Noir with the Berlin Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel appears on the composer’s Grammy-nominated multivolume anthology.

Recent performances include the Belgium premiere of Guillaume Connesson’s Saxophone Concerto: A Kind of Trane by Stéphane Denève and the Brussels Philharmonic, recorded for Deutsche Grammophon. Additional soloist engagements include the Hong Kong Philharmonic and the Albany, Buffalo, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Seattle symphony orchestras. 

Timothy McAllister spent more than 20 years as soprano saxophonist of the Grammy-winning PRISM Quartet, and serves as professor of saxophone at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre, and Dance. He holds degrees from the University of Michigan, having studied with legendary saxophonist Donald Sinta.
