Morton Gould (1913-1996) was an American composer, conductor, and arranger whose lighter works generally drew on American subject matter and music. In his later works Gould concentrated on abstract, as opposed to programmatic or popular, works. His style became more contrapuntal, dissonant, and complex in its treatment of musical materials. Throughout his career Gould was a skillful orchestrator, sensitive to color and texture, and original in his combinations of instruments. His ballets include Fall River Legend, choreographed by Agnes de Mille, and Interplay, choreographed by Jerome Robbins, and he composed numerous scores for film, Broadway, and television.
