Grammy-nominated composer-pianist Vijay Iyer was named DownBeat Magazine’s 2015 Artist of the Year and 2014 Pianist of the Year, a 2013 MacArthur Fellow, and a 2012 Doris Duke Performing Artist. In 2014 he began a permanent appointment as professor of music at Harvard University. This remarkable, continually exploring artist has more than justified the avalanche of praise heaped on him in recent years. Celebrity Series audiences have experienced Iyer’s work with his trio, in collaboration with poet Robert Pinsky, as a composer, and now expanding his working trio to a sextet.

“There’s probably no frame wide enough to encompass the creative output of the pianist Vijay Iyer.” —New York Times
