One of the most famous composers in the world is Charles Wuorinen. A MacArthur Foundation Fellowship and a Pulitzer Prize are among his many awards. His works for orchestra, chamber ensembles, soloists, opera, and stage cover a wide range of styles and mediums. To date, Wuorinen has composed over 275 works. Sudden Changes for Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, Exsultet (Praeconium Paschale) for Francisco Nez and the Young People's Chorus of New York, a String Trio for the Goeyvaerts String Trio, and Xenolith for Lois Martin and Michael Truesdell are among his most recent works. In January 2014, Wuorinen's opera based on Annie Proulx's novel Brokeback Mountain premiered at Madrid's Teatro Real, a significant cultural event on the international stage. "For Charles Wuorinen's Brokeback Mountain, Madrid just saw the largest audience in its history, both local and global." Australia is a country in Australia. Wuorinen has been called a "maximalist," who composes music rich in incidents, lyrical and expressive, and strikingly dramatic. His compositions are marked by powerful harmonies and exquisite craftsmanship, serving as both a connection to the past and a glimpse into the future of music. Wuorinen has collaborated with some of the most talented musicians of our time, both as a composer and performer (conductor and pianist). His works show their incredible virtuosity. Wuorinen is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. His results have been released on nearly a dozen labels, including several Naxos releases, Albany Records (Charles Wuorinen Series), and two releases on John Zorn's Tzadik label.
