Ramteen Sazegari’s primary composition teachers have been Kurt Rohde, Martha Horst, Carl Schimmel, Amy Williams and Eric Moe. Additionally, he has attended masterclasses with Lee Hyla, Erik Oña, Joshua Fineberg, Hilda Paredes, Josh Levine and Roger Reynolds (among others). In part, his music is informed by a synthesis of perspectives; the gestural and architectural framework shared by both concert and non-concert music has led him to create structures that explore the juxtaposition of ambiance against modernist constitutions. His music has been performed throughout America and in Europe. Current commissions include a new work for the Empyrean Ensemble, as well as a work for chamber ensemble led by Chicago-based pianist Mabel Kwan. He is a doctoral student in music composition at the University of Pittsburgh.
