A Tribute to Pulitzer Prize-Winning Composer Bernard Rands

Renowned British-American composer Bernard Rands will celebrate his 90th birthday with a musical celebration at Barrington’s White House

Renowned British-American composer Bernard Rands (b. 1934) will celebrate his 90th birthday with a two-day residency at Guarneri Hall in Chicago and a musical celebration at Barrington’s White House. The event will feature guest artists including the Terra String Quartet, soprano Kristina Bachrach, cellist Alexander Hersh, and composer Augusta Read Thomas.

Rands is established as a major figure in contemporary music; his work Canti del Sole, premiered by Paul Sperry, Zubin Mehta, and the New York Philharmonic, won the 1984 Pulitzer Prize in Music. His large orchestral suites Le Tambourin, won the 1986 Kennedy Center Friedheim Award. His work Canti d’Amor, recorded by Chanticleer, won a Grammy award in 2000.

The event will feature works that deeply influenced Rands,compositions from his own seven-decade career, and pieces written by composers on whom Rands has had a profound influence. Rands will speak about his life and his earliest influences, illuminate elements in his work, and talk about the music of the composers that have followed him.
