Charles Wuorinen (Composer)

Born: 9th June 1938, New York, U.S.A

Nationality: American

Charles Peter Wuorinen was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer of contemporary classical music based in New York City. He performed his works and other 20th-century music as pianist and conductor.

He composed more than 270 works, including orchestral music, chamber music, solo instrumental and vocal works, and operas such as Brokeback Mountain. Salman Rushdie and Annie Proulx have collaborated with him. Wuorinen's work has been called serialist, but he came to disparage that term as meaningless.
