Christopher Rouse (b2/15/1949)

Christopher Rouse is one of America’s most prominent composers. Winner of the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for his Trombone Concerto and a 2002 GRAMMY® for his Concert de Gaudi, Rouse has created a body of work perhaps unequalled in its expressive intensity. The New York Times has called it “some of the most memorable music around.”

Born in Baltimore in 1949, Rouse developed an early interest in both classical and popular music. He graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory and Cornell University, numbering among his principal teachers George Crumb and Karel Husa. He taught composition at the Eastman School of Music for two decades and currently teaches composition at The Juilliard School.

His music has been played by every major orchestra in the U.S. and by numerous ensembles overseas, including the Berlin Philharmonic, the London and BBC Symphony Orchestras, and the Sydney, Singapore, and Toronto Symphonies. Recent highlights include the premieres of his Oboe Concerto by the Minnesota Orchestra (2009); his Symphony No. 3 by the St. Louis Symphony (2011); Heimdall’s Trumpet by the Chicago Symphony (2012); Supplica by the Pittsburgh Symphony (2014); and Odna Zhizn (2010), Prospero’s Rooms (2013), Thunderstuck and Symphony No. 4 (both 2014) by the New York Philharmonic. Soloists for whom he has composed works include Yo-Yo Ma, Emanuel Ax, Evelyn Glennie, Cho-Liang Lin, and Sharon Isbin.
