Charles Peter Wuorinen is an American composer of contemporary classical music based in New York City. Awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1970, Wuorinen has in recent years dedicated himself to large-scale works for the stage, including collaborations with Salman Rushdie and Annie Proulx. His catalog of more than 260 compositions includes works for orchestra, opera, and chamber music, as well as solo instrumental and vocal works. Wuorinen's work has been described as adhering to serialism, but in recent years he has come to disparage that term as meaningless.
