Kati Agócs is a composer whose music merges lapidary rigor with sensuous lyricism and is performed by leading musicians across the globe.  A 2013 Guggenheim Fellow, she was recently awarded the Arts and Letters Award in Music from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, which honors outstanding artistic achievement and acknowledges the composer who has arrived at his or her own voice. The citation issued by the Academy praised "music that seems to come directly from nature... a wonderfully accessible lyricism;  a subtle hint of spirituality; colourful and individual music that unfolds with both drama and complexity and takes risks with both the ideas and the use of instruments."  Kati Agócs serves on the composition faculty at the New England Conservatory in Boston.
