Juhi Bansal

Los Angeles, CA   

Described as “radiant and transcendent” by New Classic LA, the music of Juhi Bansal takes inspiration from her multicultural background growing up in India and Hong Kong. Her work features themes celebrating musical and cultural diversity, nature and the environment, and strong female role models.

Current projects include Enchantress of Numbers, an opera about Ada Lovelace, daughter of infamous poet Lord Byron and a 19th Century pioneer in computing, and We Look to the Stars, a full-length cantata for soloists and chorus commissioned by LA Opera, celebrating the diversity of the human experience through stories from different cultures about the night sky. Recent seasons have included commissions from the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, Beth Morrison Projects, New York Virtuoso Singers, Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre and more.

Wings – trio for piano, violin and cello (mvt 3)

Wings is a trio for violin, cello and piano in three movements, built around the image of a solitary bird flying through a rain-filled sky. The first movement reflects the twisting, fluid nature of flight, with sweeping gestures and rhapsodic lines. The second movement imitates the sounds of rain – drops and sudden flurries grow into a defined, rhythmic sound which contrasts the outer sections. The final movement is built around wind – dramatic gusts expanding from unisons in all the instruments over an unsettled and shifting pulse.

An Imaginary Thing for violin and piano, is a three movement work inspired by Walt Whitman’s One Hour to Madness and Joy. This piece tries to capture the frenetic, angular, reckless nature of the text, as well as its underlying lyrical side. The relationship between piano and violin changes over the course of the work from a combined furious clash of notes to intertwining layers, to a single lyrical entity, reflecting the characters present in the text.
This piece was commissioned by Panic Duo.
