“A MASTER OF MYRIAD STYLES”
— Gramophone, February 2021
Hailed by Gramophone as "a master of myriad styles," Henry Dehlinger is an American composer whose vocal, chamber, and orchestral works are helping shape the landscape of contemporary classical music.
His works "are diverse in atmosphere and harmonic language," says Gramophone, "and the writing is rich, often rapturous." Audiophile Audition calls his music "stunningly superb" and “formidably essential listening!”
