 Update me on new releases by Coates

Gloria Coates (b10/10/1938)

In the Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart article on the American Symphony, Ludwig Finscher hails Gloria Coates’s symphonic works as “the spirit of an expressionistic-apocalyptic-mystical world view.” Kyle Gann writes of her chamber music, “The sparer context of these chamber works sounds solidly American…a rustic stolidity, a willingness to walk firmly forward off the beaten paths…an American through and through.”

Born in Wisconsin, Gloria Coates began composing and experimenting with overtones and clusters at the age of nine. Her musical intuition has led her to ever widening visions and experiences. She considers both Alexander Tcherepnin, who encouraged her composing since she was 16, and Otto Luening, to have been her “gurus.” Her studies took her from Chicago and Louisiana (with a Master’s Degree in Composition), to New York’s Cooper Union Art School, and Columbia University for postgraduate studies in music composition.

While maintaining a residence in the United States, Gloria Coates has lived in Europe since 1969 where she has promoted American music both in organising a German-American Music Series (1971–1984), writing musicological articles, and producing broadcasts for the radio stations of Munich, Cologne, and Bremen.
