This online masterclass will feature Utsav Lal in conversation with Donald Sosin.
Steinway’s Young Artist of 2010, Utsav Lal made his debut at the age of eighteen with his rendition of Indian ragas on the piano, stunning the world with his innovative handling of Hindustani classical music on a Western instrument. Often referred to as the “Raga Pianist,” he has gained international recognition, performing everywhere from Ireland to Singapore, Germany to Kuwait, and beyond.
Pianist Donald Sosin has been creating and performing silent film music for forty-five years, playing for major festivals, archives, and DVD recordings.
