George Rochberg (born 1918 in Paterson, N.J.) is an American composer. He abandoned serialism after 1963 and by the seventies was causing controversy with often obviously tonal music. He compares atonality to abstract art and tonality to concrete art and compares his artistic evolution with Philip Guston's, saying "the tension between concreteness and abstraction" is a fundamental issue for both of them (Rochberg, 1992).
