David Rakowski (b. 1958) — Elegy (2002/05) for organ

David Rakowski (b. 1958) was born in St. Albans Vermont and was educated at the New England Conservatory, Princeton University, and Tanglewood. His teachers included Robert Ceely, John Heiss, Milton Babbitt, Paul Lansky, Peter Westergaard, and Luciano Berio. Rakowski held faculty positions at Stanford University, Columbia University, and in 1995 joined the faculty of Brandeis University, where he was appointed the Walter W. Naumburg Professor of Composition. He has also held part-time appointments twice each at at Harvard University and the New England Conservatory. Though not himself a pianist, Rakowski is perhaps best-known for his set of 100 piano etudes (followed by a set of 100 preludes), which have been widely performed and recorded. His large catalog as composer also aincludes numerous works for large ensembles (including seven symphonies), several concerti, and a variety of chamber and vocal music.
