P.K. Winkler
Peter Kenton [Peter] Winkler (26/01/1943), an American composer and professor in composition, theory and popular music. He was born in Los Angeles, CA, studied with Earl Kim at Princeton and as a member of the Society of Fellows at Harvard University. While a student in the mid-1960's he was "fatally" seduced by the music of the Beatles and Motown, and began a life-long creative and scholarly involvement with popular music. His compositions include both concert works and music for the theater, and many of his pieces explore connections between popular and classical idioms.
