Gilbert Trythall

Biography

As a twentieth century composer of both traditional and electronic works, Gilbert Trythall combines the large scale sonorities reminiscent of Paul Hindemith and Wallingford Riegger with the expanded capabilities of both electronic and conventional instruments. A graduate of the University of Tennessee, Northwestern, and Cornell universities, from which he received his Doctorate of Composition, Trythall has studied with David Van Vactor, Riegger, Read more and Robert Palmer. He is also the author of several books on musical composition and has taught at Knox College in Galesburg, IL, Peabody College (now a part of Vanderbilt University), and West Virginia University. His Symphony No. 1 (1958) is a demanding work for large orchestra, and his Hecuba and Polyxena of the same period is a severe, brilliant twelve-tone work. Beginning with the Moog synthesizer in the early 1960s, Trythall made increasing use of electronic and computerized resources and in the 1990s taught composition to students worldwide via his own Internet site from West Virginia University. Following his retirement in 1999, Trythall embarked upon a two-year program to develop courses in music and composition in Brazil. Read less
