Ran’s music is best described (to the extent that it can be described) as freely atonal or pantonal, though, as she has explained, it usually has tonal points of reference.

But her musical language has been characterized frequently as growing out of the pointed, direct expressionist style—although in a 1991 interview she stated, “I don’t know that I would use the word ‘expressionist’ in quite the same way I would have ten years ago.” Certainly her approach to music expression is complex (and, by her own admission, for the most part undefinable), in stark contrast to fashions of so-called “accessibility” that have hovered over and even overtaken contemporary music since the 1990s—almost as remorse for the intellectual rigors of the 1960s and 1970s that date to the Second Viennese School—fashions that include minimalism as well as yet another round of neo-Romanticism (actually, neo-neo-Romanticism).

After she assumed her position at the University of Chicago, Ran, who became increasingly intrigued by Shapey’s music, compositional procedures, and pedagogic techniques, asked him to teach her privately as a senior colleague.

She worked with him tutorially on a postdoctoral basis for about nine months.

Indeed, it was that very quality that caught the interest of “Think of Ran’s instruments as thinking characters on some vast music-theater stages of the mind, and you’re halfway there!

” In some of her works from the 1990s on, she has incorporated elements and influences of Near Eastern traditional musics, evoking their modalities, cantillations, and flavors, yet subtly and liberally embedded within an overall pantonal aesthetic.At the age of fourteen Ran received a scholarship, along with further assistance from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation, to attend the Mannes School of Music in New York, where she studied composition with Norman Dello Joio and piano with Nadia Reisenberg.At that time her focus was set equally on composition and piano performance, and she acquired an outstanding reputation as a brilliant pianist on concert stages in the United States, Canada, Europe, Israel, and Argentina.She studied at the Tel Aviv Conservatory for a time, but left in order to pursue serious composition studies with Paul Ben-Haim and also with Alexander Boscovich—two of the leading personalities in the Israeli composers’ establishment of that time, both of whom had been instrumental in the development of a distinctive modern Israeli classical music and its so-called Mediterranean school.She continued her piano studies with Miriam Boscovich and Emma Gorochov.One of her first such pieces is (1990), for flute, piccolo, amplified flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and piano.
