Charles Rosen

Charles Rosen was born in New York City on May 5, 1927. His early piano studies were with Moriz Rosenthal and with Rosenthal's wife, Hedwig Kanner. Rosen then pursued academic studies at Princeton University, earning a PhD in French literature. He made his New York debut in 1951 and began actively concertizing in the U.S. and Europe. Rosen's numerous recordings embrace music from Bach and Scarlatti to Carter and Boulez. He has served on the faculty of the University of Chicago and has published nearly a dozen books, most notably "The Classical Style" (1972) and "The Romantic Generation" (1995).
