Ch.L. Bestor
Dr. Charles (Lemon) Bestor (21/12/1924), an American composer, born in New York City. Dr. Bestor received his musical training under Paul Hindemith at Yale University, and Vincent Persichetti and Peter Mennin at Julliard School of Music. He also studied at Swarthmore College and the Universities of Illinois and Colorado. Independently he studied electronic music with composer Vladimir Ussachevsky. His early works primarily consisted of the12 tone technique (dodecophonic) with a grounding in Hindemith’s counterpoint technique. His later works employed electronic media, and he integrated jazz, tonaly based harmonic, melodic and rythmic elements into formal structures of traditional concert music.
