Pavel Karmanov is one of the few contemporary composers writing melodically beautiful and straightforward music. The graduate of Moscow Conservatory and a member of the iconic avant-garde rock band Vezhlivy Otkaz, Karmanov has mastered a multitude of composition techniques, from serialism to pseudo Baroque, but minimal music has left a special mark on his work. To this day, Karmanov’s favorite contemporary composer is Steve Reich, and the Russian composer regularly engages in a musical dialogue with him.
Pavel Karmanov will perform:
“Present for Vladimir Martynov” (2016)
