(b 1954 )

Gary Kulesha (b. 1954) works principally as a composer, though he is also active as a pianist, conductor and teacher. He has been composer in residence to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, was composer-advisor to the Canadian Opera Company, and has enjoyed a lengthy relationship with the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa. Gary Kulesha is a Senior Lecturer in Composition at the University of Toronto. Though Ensembles was written in 1979, and is thus one of Kulesha’s earlier works, it shows some of the key characteristics that make him such an effective composer: a clear use of musical structure, plus the ability to let stillness and repose be an important part of the piece. In 2007 the Toronto Wind Orchestra commissioned Kulesha to write a major new work for wind ensemble. The Greatness of the New-Found Night received its première performance in November, 2008.
