The long and the short
ArtistsAnna Skouras (violin)
Andreas Skouras (piano, harpsichord)
In 1962, together with Harvey Sollberger and Nicolas Roussakis, he founded the pioneering Group for Contemporary Music. He continued to work intensively as a composer, pianist, conductor and composition professor at various universities, and his textbook Simple Composition of 1979 is used by students all over the world even today.
In 1970 Wuorinen was the youngest composer ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for his electronic composition Time’s Encomium. In the words of Andreas Skouras, who has made a name for himself as a champion of contemporary music on the harpsichord and piano in equal measure: “In Charles Wuorinen’s music I am fascinated by the mixture of complexity and the musician’s joy of playing.”
The violinist Anna Skouras remarks: “The two works for violin solo by Charles Wuorinen resemble each other at first glance. Both pieces are true gems in the violin literature, and I am pleased to have discovered them for myself and recorded them.”
