Add To Cart

Dr. Igor Karaca is a Bosnian-American composer and pianist of classical and jazz music. Most of his work has been for chamber ensembles and electronic media. He employs a wide variety of techniques, ranging from controlled aleatoric, avant-jazz inspirited textures, to more traditional, neoclassical style; he usually aims to make his work accessible to a relatively large audience.

The title track, “Handful of Dust” is a programmatic piece about the siege of Sarajevo – the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare – and is a musical transformation of Karaca’s experience during those difficult and uncertain times.
