Remembering Henry Brant

From the Boston Globe:

Sept. 15 would have been the 100th birthday of composer Henry Brant. Born in Canada to American parents, Brant forged a career that was similarly bilateral. An expert orchestrator, he plied that trade in a variety of commercial settings: big bands, radio, television, and film. (A partnership with film composer Alex North was especially symbiotic, Brant orchestrating North’s scores to everything from “Cleopatra” to “Good Morning, Vietnam.”) At the same time, in his own music, Brant pursued a distinct avant-garde path.
