Hailed by Gramophone as “a master of myriad styles,” Henry Dehlinger is an American composer whose vocal, chamber, and orchestral works are reshaping contemporary classical music.
His works are “diverse in atmosphere and harmonic language,” says Gramophone, “and the writing is rich, often rapturous." Journal of Singing adds, "Dehlinger makes it work perfectly," while Audiophile Audition calls Dehlinger’s music "stunningly superb" and “formidably essential listening!”
This 2021-22 season, Dehlinger premieres several important new works, including The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock: A Rhapsody for Voice and Orchestra with National Philharmonic in the fall, and Kohelet: A Cantata in Five Movements with two performances in the spring. His latest album, At That Hour: Art Songs by Henry Dehlinger, is featured on Spotify’s High Notes playlist, representing “the best new releases in opera and vocal music.”
