Chris Lastovicka

Chris Lastovicka designs music dealing primarily with psychological and metaphysical subjects. Most of Lastovicka’s music can be loosely categorized as mystic minimalism. An excerpt from Lastovicka’s opera "Crossing the Horizon" was performed by New York City Opera at their VOX: Showcasing American Composers festival; the opera was also a finalist in OperaVista’s international chamber opera competition (Houston). Lastovicka’s music has been performed at the Boston Early Music Festival, Merce Cunningham Studio, and in Spoleto, Italy. Chris Lastovicka composed the original score for Robin Becker Dance’s "Into Sunlight", a work about the Vietnam War that has enjoyed performances internationally. Chris Lastovicka released their first album of chamber music "Fortune Has Turned" in 2005 on the Ahari Press label
