MARJAN MOZETICH (b 1948 )
Born in Italy to Slovenian parents, Marjan Mozetich emigrated to Canada as a child. After earning music degrees from the Royal Conservatory of Music and the University of Toronto, he studied privately with Luciano Berio in Rome. He is now on the music faculty at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Over his career Mozetich’s music has evolved from avant-garde expressionism and minimalism into an original spiritual style of post-modern romanticism, especially popular with contemporary dance companies as well as the layman. When his 1997 Violin Concerto, ‘Affairs of the Heart’, was broadcast on CBC Radio in Canada, the telephone switchboards lit up from coast to coast.
