Christopher Rouse (1949-2019)

Christopher Rouse, the prominent US composer who won the Pulitzer Prize for music in 1993, has died at 70. A Baltimore native and resident, Rouse was best-known for his orchestral music, often characterized as “neo-romantic” but drawing inspiration from genres as diverse as South Asian indigenous music and rock. His Sixth Symphony is due for its premiere next month by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
