Montréal, Québec, 1971

  • Composer

In addition to his training as a violinist and electric guitar player, Petar-Kresimir Klanac studied composition with Gilles Tremblay at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec in Montreal (1992-95). He later went on to study composition with Gérard Grisey at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique in Paris, where he completed his studies with Marco Stroppa. He is a regular participant in various composition workshops and seminars, including the Centre Acanthes in Avignon (France), the Fondation Royaumont (France) and the Rencontres de Musique Nouvelle du Domaine Forget in Charlevoix (Québec). Nine years spent as a singer in the Maîtrise des Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal (Saint-Joseph’s Oratory) also strongly inform Klanac’s compositional aesthetic.
