Roger Sessions

December 28, 1896 - March 16, 1985
born in Brooklyn, NY, composed during the Modern period
Roger Sessions (1896-1985) was one of the most important American composers and educators of the 20th century, though his intensely complex music did not always find a receptive audience. Well-practiced in all the musical idioms of his time, Sessions eventually settled on composing in a modified serial style, and most of his mature works feature a blending of twelve tone techniques with free atonal and tonal elements. The author of a Violin Concerto, a Piano Concerto, nine symphonies, the opera Montezuma, and numerous other works, Sessions won the Pulitzer Prize in 1982 for his Concerto for Orchestra, his last major composition. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

I used to have his Symphonies 6,7, and 9 on CD -- his Vietnam war symphony is incredibly dissonant

agrees w/ stefankud... . I just discovered him....I like him better than Aaron Copeland, who seems to have the title.

Greatest American Symphonist (so far).
