"Trailblazing . . . one of his generation’s brightest jazz luminaries” —Time Out New York

The New York Times observes, “There’s probably no frame wide enough to encompass the creative output of Vijay Iyer.” This 2013 MacArthur Fellow and DownBeat magazine’s 2014 Pianist of the Year regularly tops critics’ lists and fan polls. A polymath whose career has spanned the sciences, the humanities, and the arts, Iyer received an interdisciplinary PhD in the cognitive science of music from the University of California, Berkeley.  

Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi is Iyer’s collaboration with the filmmaker Prashant Bhargava: a ravishing, impressionistic nod to Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, filmed in northern India, and performed by Iyer with ICE. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Art and Stories from Mughal India.  For the first time, Radhe Radhe with be heard alongside a complete arrangement of The Rite of Spring by the master orchestrator Cliff Colnot, made especially for ICE.
