Mátti Kovler headshot

Composer Mátti Kovler was born in Moscow, raised in Jerusalem and is now based in Brooklyn. Mátti has mastered a range of styles from folk and jazz to those steeped in the classical tradition, and brings these together in works of considerable dramatic scope, by turns comic, mystical, warm and searing. Kovler's eclectic output, from children musicals to contemporary opera and symphonic work has been compared to that of Leonard Bernstein, Kurt Weill and Alfred Schnittke. No matter the medium — from concert works to immersive music theatre — his work is characterized by a synthesis of styles stemming from a sense of musical wonderment and ravenous appetite for a wide swath of influences.
