HENRY BRANT Obit



Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Henry Brant, best known as a pioneer in the use of spatial effects, died Saturday [26 APR 2008] at his home in Santa Barbara. He was 94.

Among the hundreds of works Mr. Brant composed over a long career was "Ice Field," a work for organ and orchestra commissioned by the Other Minds Festival for the San Francisco Symphony. Michael Tilson Thomas led the world premiere in Davies Symphony Hall in December 2001, and the piece was awarded the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for Music.
