Jeremy Eichler Shares News of Transition


After 18 years at the Boston Globe, I am moving on from my position and joining the faculty of Tufts University, where I’ll be taking up a newly created professorship in music history and public humanities, beginning this fall.

I will really miss working with many wonderful Globe colleagues. I’m also very excited for a new home base where I will be able to bring my experience into the classroom, continue with my public-facing writing (including a new book project about which I hope to share more soon), and embark on a new set of collaborations including a position next season as the first Writer-in-Residence of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

I’ve never been particularly good on FB, so to keep in touch, I am launching a free (occasional) email newsletter through which I’ll share recent writing, news of events, recommendations and more. I hope you’ll consider signing up HERE. Meanwhile, my deepest thanks to everyone who has engaged so generously with the coverage over the years. As I wrote in a farewell column that will be published soon, the chance to listen and reflect with such an extraordinary musical community for nearly two decades has been the privilege of a lifetime.

  1. This doesn’t really come as a surprise since it has been some time since you’ve been a regular presence in The Globe’s pages, but I’m sure that I can speak for many readers and music lovers when I say that I have looked forward to your reviews and articles whenever they did appear. We have been fortunate to have had you as the Globe’s critic for as long as we have. I wish you good luck in your new endeavors, but I can’t help but feel a sense of loss that I can no longer look forward to your reviews.

  2. A great loss for the Globe and its readers. We have been lucky to have such distinguished music criticism for many years. Boston’s tradition of great classical music and its current wealth of outstanding performing groups deserves the best. I hope the newspaper can find a replacement of similar stature.

  3. I concur in the two notes above, and here is more, for those who missed it:
