Additional Description:

The Honors recital of pianist and composer Shayan Kalantar is a demonstration of his piano studies at UC San Diego. Featuring work by composers which have come to guide his compositional direction like Rachmaninoff and Godowsky, as well as one of his own compositions combining field recordings with acoustic improvisation. It is a window into the world which sparks his creativity, while guiding his compositional direction.

His future work aims to penetrate the modern musical world through confronting traditional performance dynamics, and merging the worlds of field-recording, electronic music, jazz, and “classical” composition.
