Del Tredici has composed work for Michael Tilson Thomas and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. His work, Adventures Underground, drew inspiration from the poem The Mouse's Tail. Del Tredici has also composed works influenced by rock and folk music. He has written works for Phyllis Bryn-Julson, San Francisco Symphony, and the New York Philharmonic. He has also composed an opera and song cycles. He has written music using the work of, or as tribute to, Chana Bloch, Colette Inez, Allen Ginsberg, Thom Gunn, Paul Monette, and Alfred Corn.
His In Memory of a Summer Day (part one of Child Alice) won Del Tredici a Pulitzer Prize. That piece would be developed into a ballet, which has been performed by the National Ballet of Canada and the Grand Théâtre de Genève. In 1988, his work Tattoo, commissioned by the Concertgebouw Orchestra, was debuted by Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic.
