He was Walter Bigelow Rosen Professor of Music at Harvard from 1961 to 1991. His musical style is highly influenced by Schoenberg though Kirchner did not employ the twelve tone technique, preferring a generally linear chromatic language and irregular rhythms.

He was awarded a Pulitzer prize for his Third String Quartet. His notable students include John Adams, Lawrence Moss, Jonathan Kramer, Tison Street, David Borden, and Curt Cacioppo.
