Composer Ned Rorem has died at 99. Rorem was a Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award winner admired for his music and his barbed prose. Incredibly prolific, the handsome and energetic artist produced a thousand-work catalog ranging from symphonies and operas to solo instrumental music, chamber and vocal music, in addition to 16 books. Time magazine once called Rorem “the world’s best composer of art songs,” and he’s known for his hundreds of compositions for the solo human voice. He wrote several revealing and acerbic diaries touching on his lengthy sojourn in Paris and life in New York and elsewhere.
