"Master of Myriad Styles"
Henry Dehlinger is an American composer, hailed by Gramophone as "a master of myriad styles planted largely in tonal soil." His works, Gramophone adds, "are diverse in atmosphere and harmonic language, and the writing is rich, often rapturous."
Major works include: Cosmic Cycles, A Space Symphony (2023), Rhapsody for Violin and Orchestra (2022), Requiem (2021), Return to the Moon, A Fanfare to Artemis (2021), Kohelet, A Cantata in Five Movements (2019), and The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, A Rhapsody for Voice and Orchestra (2017).
He also produces music for choruses and chamber ensembles and has a celebrated body of art songs and jazz arrangements.
