Biographie / Histoire administrative

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Barbara Pentland became interested at a very early age in composition, even though she received little encouragement. In 1929, despite the obstacles, she left her Montréal boarding school for Paris, where she received her first courses in composition with Cécile Gauthiez. When she returned to Winnipeg in 1930, she concentrated more on performance (piano) than on composition, although she continued her study of the latter by correspondence with Cécile Gauthiez for 18 months. In 1936, she studied composition at the Juilliard Graduate School in New York and, during the summers of 1941 and 1942, at the Berkshire Music Center (Massachusetts) with composer Aaron Copland. Neoclassical in style until the mid-1950s, her works subsequently became serialist (under the influence of Schoenberg and Webern). For several years, Barbara Pentland worked at the University of Manitoba as an examiner and taught composition and other subjects at the Toronto Conservatory of Music and the University of British Columbia. In 1977 she received the Diplôme d'honneur from the Canadian Conference of the Arts. Barbara Pentland is also an associate of the Canadian Music Centre.
