We are pleased to announce that Vijay has signed an exclusive worldwide concert music publishing agreement with Schott Music, one of the leading music and media publishers in the world. At Schott Music, Vijay joins a roster including Igor Stravinsky, Paul Hindemith, György Ligeti, Krzysztof Penderecki, and many other visionary composers of the past and present.
Norman Ryan, Schott Music’s Vice President for Composers and Repertoire, comments, “Vijay Iyer is a polymath in the truest sense of the word. He is a leader across a wide range of disciplines, but his extraordinary talent as a pianist and composer has caught the world’s attention and led to an impressive array of creative collaborations with filmmakers, choreographers, orchestras, chamber and new music ensembles. We’re thrilled to begin a collaboration with Vijay Iyer and the entire Schott Music team worldwide looks forward to supporting and expanding awareness of his unique voice and talent.”
Also on the concert music front, Vijay will return to BAM’s Next Wave Festival in December with a program titled “Vijay Iyer: Music of Transformation,” featuring the world premiere of a solo piece for piano, commissioned by BAM; his recent suite Mutations I-X for piano, electronics and string quartet; and his shimmering score to Prashant Bhargava’s film Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi, screened with accompaniment by Iyer and the International Contemporary Ensemble.
