Grammy-nominated, award-winning composer-pianist Vijay Iyer has been called
one of “today’s most important pianists … extravagantly gifted … and brilliantly eclectic” by The New Yorker and “a boundless and deeply important young star” by the Los Angeles Times. Recently, Iyer was honored in five categories of the 2012 Down Beat International Critics Poll, including Jazz Artist of the Year, Jazz Album of the Year (for Accelerando), Jazz Group of the Year (for the Vijay Iyer Trio), Pianist of the Year, and Rising Star Composer. No other artist in the 60-year history of the magazine’s poll has ever taken five titles simultaneously.
