(1945 - 2013)

Arnold Rosner was born in New York city in 1945. He earned a doctorate from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1971, during an era when the postatonal avant-garde was in full swing. Despite this Rosner pursued a conservative but highly individual style, and his works have been widely performed, recorded, and reviewed. He composed two operas, six symphonies, five string quartets, and numerous other orchestral, chamber, vocal, and choral works, including three a cappella settings of the Roman Catholic Mass. Critic Steven Schwartz commented on classical.net: “[Rosner’s] music packs a huge emotional wallop and it’s meticulously well-written besides. He writes gorgeous, powerful, long-breathed tunes. The craft serves the message to the point where it effaces itself almost completely. Listening to a Rosner work is like hearing the music of Orpheus.” Rosner served on the faculty of Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn, New York. He also worked in broadcasting and, as an avid bridge player, was a tournament champion. He died on 8 November 2013.
