Mischa Zupko

Celebrated Chicago-based composer Mischa Zupko writes music that is emotionally charged, viscerally engaging and continually seeks to involve participation on a variety of levels. Having collaborated with a number of today’s most exciting performers, he has created a body of work that is intensely virtuosic and speaks with clarity of vision. In the words of New York Times critic Anthony Tommasini, Zupko’s Five Etudes for Piano were “Liszt-like in their florid generosity” and the L.A. Times has hailed his compositions as “engaging”. He was the 2010-2011 composer-in-residence with the Fulcrum Point New Music Project based in Chicago and was featured in a cover story of the Chicago Reader for his compositional activities in the Chicagoland area.
