CCi Artists


Born 1957 in the Uzbekistan capital of Tashkent, Elena Kats-Chernin trained intensively in both music and figure-skating. When she was eighteen, her family emigrated to Australia. Kats-Chernin worked in Germany for thirteen years, composing for state theaters and ballet. She made her artistic breakthrough with Clocks, a work premiered in 1993 by the Ensemble Modern. Her airy orchestration sizzles with color and drive, and she has a knack for catchy, bittersweet tunes that detour into unexpected directions.
