André RisticCA

André Ristic was born in Quebec city, completed his studies in Montreal (piano, harpsichord, composition, mathematics), then was pianist at the Ensemble contemporain de Montréal and the Trio Fibonacci.  He is currently pianist and keyboardist at Musiques Nouvelles (Belgium) and European contemporary orchestra (France), and splits his time between Canada, Belgium and eastern Montenegro. As a composer he has been frequently recognised by distinctions, and his catalog sports 6 major orchestral works, 7 string quartets, one opera (soon, another...) and many works for piano and chamber ensemble.  His music stands stands somewhere between process/repetitive-minimalism and multi-genre collage, with a preference for irony, humour, and unnecessary simplicity and complexity.
