Praulins, Ugis (b. June 17, 1957, Riga). Latvian composer of mostly orchestral and choral works that have been performed in Europe; he is also active as a keyboardist.
Mr. Praulins studied with Pauls Dambis and Gederts Ramans at the Emils Darzin! Music School from 1963-74 and later studied conducting and pedagogy at the Academy of Music in Riga from 1977-82. He also studied composition with Janis Ivanovs in 1982-83 and Gederts Ramans from 1984-89 at this same school.
Among his honors are the awards for best album and best folk album at the Grand Prix in Riga (1999, for Odi et amo and Pagan Yearbook) and selection of the Missa Rigensis as one of the favorite pieces of the month by the International Database of Choral Repertoire (2003).
He has also been active as a rock musician, notably as a keyboardist in the progressive-rock group Salve in the 1970s and in the folk-/progressive-rock group Vecas Majas in the 1980s. He also worked as a sound engineer at Latvian Radio from 1981-86, where he introduced the first multitrack recordings of folk music.
In addition to the works listed below, Mr. Praulins has composed much film music.
