Praised for his “burnished sound” (The New York Times) and described as an “electrifying, poetic, and sensitive musician,” the Grammy Award-winning, Japanese-Norwegian violist Masumi Per Rostad hails from the gritty East Village of 1980s New York. He was raised in an artist loft converted from a garage with a 1957 Chevy Belair as the remnant centerpiece in their living room. Masumi began his studies at the nearby Third Street Music School Settlement at age three and has gone on to become one of the most in demand soloists, chamber musicians, and teachers. In addition to maintaining an active performance schedule, he serves on the faculty of the prestigious Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY.
“Daniel Kellogg is one of the most exciting composers around – technically assured, fascinated by unusual sonic textures, unfailingly easy to listen to, yet far from simplistic.” wrote the Washington Post. Kellogg, Associate Professor of Composition at the University of Colorado, has had premieres with the Philadelphia Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra, the San Diego Symphony, the Kansas City Symphony, the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Ensemble Orchestral de Paris, the Takács Quartet, and the Aspen Music Festival. He has served as composer-in-residence for Young Concert Artists, the South Dakota Symphony, the Green Bay Symphony, and the Lexington Philharmonic. He is currently the President of YCA.
