Europe. A strong advocate for modern music, Kirchoff has premiered over 100 new works and 
commissioned over two dozen compositions. As part of his commitment to fostering new audiences

as a lecture-recitalist. He has played with orchestras throughout the U.S., performing a wide range of 
concerto, including the Boston premiere of Charles Ives's Emerson Concerto and the world premier of
