(1949 - 2014)

“I am pleased to have been a composer who can satisfy all kinds, somewhat in the fashion of a Benjamin Britten,” Stephen Paulus remarked a few years ago during a retrospective interview on his career by Minnesota Public Radio. The wide range of audiences and performers for whom he has written music is reflected in his remarkably versatile and prolific list of works. It encompasses large-scale orchestral and choral works, operas and chamber works, as well as pieces for community groups and young musicians. Paulus’s complete catalogue tallies more than 450 compositions. Yet along with his own creative work, Paulus has found time to be a powerful advocate for fellow composers. In 1973 he co-founded the American Composers Forum, the largest composer service organization in the world, and he has also served as Concert Music Representative on the ASCAP Board of Directors.

The much sought-after composer has been commissioned by such leading institutions as the New York Philharmonic, The Cleveland Orchestra, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Minnesota Orchestra, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. A significant composer of opera as well, Paulus, who studied with Dominick Argento at the University of Minnesota, has created thirteen works for the stage.
