Christopher Rouse is known for orchestral scores that possess a driving, sometimes brutal energy * In recent years, a new current of lyricism has emerged in his music * His scores have been performed by every major orchestra in the U.S. and an increasing number in Europe and Asia * Champions include conductors Alan Gilbert, David Robertson, Leonard Slatkin, Marin Alsop, and David Zinman * Winner of the 1993 Pulitzer Prize in Music for his Trombone Concerto and a Grammy (Best Contemporary Composition, 2002) for his guitar concerto, Concert de Gaudí * Among soloists, noted interpreters include Emanuel Ax, Evelyn Glennie, Sharon Isbin, Yo-Yo Ma, and Dawn Upshaw

Works by Christopher Rouse include:
Der Gerettete Alberich (1997) for solo percussion and orchestra
Flute Concerto (1993) for flute and orchestra
Phaethon (1986) for orchestra
Odna Zhizn (2009) for orchestra
Compline (1996) for flute, clarinet, harp, and string quartet

Looking Ahead: This May, the Oregon Symphony performs Rouse’s Concerto for Orchestra, and, in August, the Aspen Festival Orchestra performs the composer’s Third Symphony.

"When the music history of the late 20th century is written, I suspect the explosive and passionate music of Rouse will loom large."  Baltimore Sun
