Kati Agócs is a composer whose music merges lapidary rigor with sensuous lyricism, and is performed by leading musicians across the globe. The Boston Globe has called it "music of fluidity and austere beauty" which "combines great tensile strength with a gorgeous unfolding of luminous lyrical episodes, rich inventive counterpoint, and a feeling of deep, elusive mystery." The New York Times has described her music as “intriguing”, “striking”, “nimble”, and “filled with attractive ideas,” and her vocal writing as possessing "an almost 19th-century naturalness."  Born in 1975, Kati Agócs is a citizen of three countries: the USA, Canada, and Hungary (European Union). She is a winner of the 2014 Arts and Letters Award in Music from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and a 2013 Composition Fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.  She has served on the composition faculty at the New England Conservatory in Boston since 2008.  For more reviews, go to the press section.
