This pianist has won almost every award the past three years, including the rare JazzTimes “quadruple crown” (best artist, group, pianist, album). Iyer seems everywhere at once, touring as an improvising musician, lecturing as a full-time professor at Harvard, and lately, writing music for chamber groups. This show presents music from his debut on ECM, Mutations I-X, featuring a traditional classical string quintet with the composer on piano, and RADHE RADHE: Rites of Holi, a work for music and film to be presented simultaneously. Up next: writing songs for One Direction. (Kidding. Probably.)
