Henry's three-movement Cello Sonata in C Minor opens with images of wild, windy moors. The second movement is a mesmerizing fantasy with modal melodies and wistful phrases. The reverie yields to fitful bursts of serial arpeggios with a hint of funk in the final movement. Sheet music is now available at J.W. Pepper.
Henry Dehlinger is an American composer whose vocal, chamber, and orchestral works are helping shape the landscape of contemporary classical music. Gramophone lauds his “vibrantly colorful palette” and "exquisite piano-playing."
A noted musicologist considers him, "one of the most successful practitioners of polystylism, a distinctly 21st-century musical style." Audiophile Audition calls his accomplishments “stunningly superb” and “formidably essential listening!”
“Empoweringly sung, emotively ornate”
