Rosenzweig's music places the listener in various states, situations and then makes things happen.

Morris Rosenzweig was born October 1, 1952 in New Orleans, where he grew up among the tailors, merchants, and strong-willed women of an extended family that has lived in southern Louisiana since the mid 1890s. His works have been widely presented throughout the United States, as well as in Europe, Japan, Argentina, Mexico and Israel. His recorded compositions are available on Albany Records Centaur, and New World/CRI. Mr. Rosenzweig has received honors from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, commissions from the Koussevitzky Foundation in the Library of Congress, the Argosy Foundation, the Fromm Foundation at Harvard University, and support from the Alice M. Ditson Fund. Presently Professor of Music at the University of Utah, he has formerly held positions at Queens College and New York University. He was educated at the Eastman School of Music, the University of Pennsylvania, and Columbia University.

Review:
"Listen with care to the music in Morris Rosenzweig's new disc, Past Light, or you're likely to miss something important, compelling, witty, or lovely. This is not to say that his music is overly dense, or even forbiddingly complex. Rather, the most striking aspect is his skill at stuffing complete, pithy thoughts into very small packages. ...This is fine, important music, expertly played and recorded." (Fanfare)

"These thought-provoking works are given wonderful readings by musicians with complete control of pitch, tone, and dynamics." (American Record Guide)
