Elias Tanenbaum (1924-2008)

Elias Tanenbaum composed a dizzying array of music for all kinds of mediums, orchestras, ensembles, with or without electronics. He embraced chance music and modernism, but seemed emancipated when minimalism brought tonality and pulse back to classical music, and when he brought his beloved jazz along for the ride.
