George Perle

George Perle (born May 6, 1915 in Bayonne, New Jersey) is a composer and musicologist who has studied with Ernst Krenek. He composes with a technique of his own devising called twelve-tone tonality, which is very different from the twelve tone technique (Perle, 1992).

He was cofounder, in 1968, of the Alban Berg Society with Igor Stravinsky and, in 1986, was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship and a Pulitzer Prize for his Fourth Wind Quintet.
