Argentinian-American composer Ezequiel Viñao has been described by the members of the Juilliard String Quartet as a "particularly
personal and intimate musical voice," one that "combines an encyclopedic musical knowledge with an eclectic compositional
philosophy." It is perhaps this sense of diversity in the music that has prompted a wide range of organizations and performers
to collaborate with Mr. Viñao: the list includes Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, City Opera, Miller Theatre and The Kitchen
in New York; the Almeida Theatre in London; the Musikverein in Vienna; the Kennedy Center and the Library of Congress in Washington;
the Presences and Bourges Festivals in France; the Celebrity Series in Boston; the Helsinki Biennale; the Tanglewood, Ravinia
and Aspen Music Festivals; The Tramway in Glasgow; the Philips Muziekcentrum in Holland; the Shobi Institute in Tokyo; musicians
as varied as Dennis Russell Davies, Kristjan Jarvi, Joseph Kalichstein, Stephen Gosling and Anne Akiko Meyers, and ensembles
such as the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Chanticleer, the American Composers Orchestra, Absolute Ensemble, Da
Camera of Houston, The Smith Quartet, Speculum Musicae, and the Juilliard and Brentano String Quartets.
A five-time ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music) First Prize winner, Viñao has been singled out for distinction
with a Kennedy Center Friedheim Award; a First Prize from UNESCO's Latin-American Rostrum of Composers; an Endowed Fellowship
from California's Djerassi Foundation, and by the Argentinean Academy of Fine Arts, the International Music Council in Paris,
the San Antonio Festival in Texas and the New York Foundation for the Arts.
