UC San Diego composer Roger Reynolds was awarded this year's Pulitzer Prize in music Thursday, the second composer on the UCSD music faculty to receive the prestigious award in the past five years. Bernard Rands won a Pulitzer in 1984, when he taught at UCSD and concurrently held the post of composer-in-residence with the San Diego Symphony. Reynolds received the prize for his composition "Whispers Out of Time," a six-movement, 25-minute work for string orchestra.

The big news at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Thursday should have involved the world premiere of a major opus by Roger Reynolds. His ambitious, somewhat forbidding new symphony--commissioned by the Koussevitzky Foundation in the Library of Congress for Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic--brackets "The Stages of Life" as a portentous subtitle. But the large audience mustered a lot more enthusiasm for the Three Bs: Bronfman, Bartok and Beethoven.

When Roger Reynolds was awarded the 1989 Pulitzer Prize for music, it was not as if the UC San Diego composer had been retrieved from total obscurity. In the 1980s, the respected innovator in electronic music composition and regular participant in European and North American contemporary music festivals, heard his more traditionally scored works performed by orchestras in New York and San Francisco.

The world premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Roger Reynolds' orchestral work "Dreaming," scheduled for its first performance by the San Diego Symphony on Dec. 11, has been postponed until the 1993-94 season. Music director Yoav Talmi announced the program change Thursday morning, explaining that the orchestra had not received all of the orchestra parts of the new score. "The music material arrived only partially, with some parts still not available to several key soloists," Talmi said.

Since the formation of the UC San Diego music department in the late 1960s, its success has depended on a community of composers balanced by resident performers capable of realizing their creations. Aleck Karis' piano recital Thursday in UCSD's Warren Studio A demonstrated the continued health of this laudable symbiosis.

Receiving the Pulitzer Prize in 1989 did not radically transform Roger Reynolds' career. About the only difference is that the 57-year-old composer now has more commissions on his desk than he has time to complete. "After spending half of my life working to get to the point where I can realize my aspirations, I now have more opportunities than I can possibly handle," said Reynolds. Articulate and soft-spoken, Reynolds is the quintessential philosopher-composer. All he lacks is a pipe and tweed coat with suede elbow patches, touches too obvious for the natty UC San Diego music professor.

What's the Score?: All is not peaceful in Pulitzer land following announcement of the coveted annual prizes on Tuesday. The Pulitzer board ignored the unanimous recommendation of the nominating jury for music, composers George Perle, Roger Reynolds and Harvey Sollberger--a move those three musicians have protested as "especially alarming because it occurred without consultation and without knowledge of either our standards or rationale.
