(b 1943 )

Trained at the Cleveland Institute, Kent State University, the University of Illinois and Warsaw Conservatory, the American composer Dennis Eberhard has established himself as one of the leading American composers of his generation. The recipient of a number of grants and awards, including the American Rome Prize, he is now on the faculty of Kent State University.

Orchestral Music

Eberhard’s Shadow of the Swan, a piano concerto originally conceived for the Russian pianist Halida Dinova, became, under the influence of a poem by Yevtushenko, a reaction to the disaster of the Russian submarine Kursk. His Prometheus Wept began as a commemoration of the victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and incorporates the Russian liturgical chant of a passage from the Book of Revelations, extending the human references of the work into a still wider context.
