The Stuart Greenbaum sound has overt connections to jazz, pop and minimalism but the experience of listening to the music goes beyond these tangible influences.
Stuart Greenbaum (b. Melbourne 1966) studied composition with Brenton Broadstock and Barry Conyngham at the University of Melbourne, where he now holds a position as Senior Lecturer and Head of Composition (Parkville).
Nelson, a 3-act opera written with long-time collaborator, poet Ross Baglin, was premiered at the 2007 Castlemaine State Festival. Current commissions include a dramatic work, The Parrot Factory, for Victorian Opera, and a Piano Trio for NZ Trio as part of the 2009 Trans-Tasman Composer Project.
Greenbaum was a Featured Composer at the 2006 Aurora Festival in Western Sydney, Composer in Focus at the 2009 Bangalow Music Festival and Resident Composer at the 2009 Port Fairy Spring Festival of Music. He has won a number of awards, including the Dorian Le Gallienne Composition Award, the Heinz Harant Prize and the Albert H.
