"Master of Myriad Styles"
Hailed by Gramophone as “a master of myriad styles,” Henry Dehlinger is an American composer of vocal, choral, and symphonic concert music.
His compositions, says Gramophone's Donald Rosenberg, "are diverse in atmosphere and harmonic language, and the writing is rich, often rapturous." Musicologist James Melo calls Dehlinger, "one of the most successful practitioners of polystylism, a distinctly 21st-century musical style that draws from multiple influences, genres, traditions, and techniques.”
