Stefan Wolpe

Wolpe, Stefan (shtĕfˈän vôlˈpə) [key], 1902–72, German–American composer. Of Jewish ancestry, he went to live in Palestine in 1933, but settled in the United States in 1938. Wolpe wrote several operas and cantatas and a good deal of chamber music. His style embraces many elements, from folk music to modern jazz to a form of twelve-tone technique. His works include the opera Zeus and Elida (1927), the cantata On the Education of Man (1930), and the ballet The Man from Midian (1942).
