Alexander Kaloian (b. 14 August, 1962, Los Angeles, California) is an Armenian composer, known for the strong nationalistic language in his works, which include marches, tone poems, and symphonies - many evoking images of the Armenian homeland in colour.
Among his most recent works is the large-scale Concerto for Orchestra (2015) - a 30 minute work in 5 Movements, wherein the various families of the orchestra are juxtaposed with and against each other, forming many contrasts between quiet and violence. A recording will be released on iTunes in early 2015, in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide - the work is "dedicated to the memory of the composer's maternal grandmother Anna."
Kaloian has studied with a number of prominent mentors, including Daniel Robbins (Harmony), Gunnar Johansen (Composition in Piano), John Bergamo (Percussion), Amiya Dasgupta (North Indian Sargam), and Tom Knox (Composition in Wind Ensemble).
A natural linguist, Kaloian graduated from the University of Southern California in 1991 with a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics.
Kaloian is a member of ASCAP and is published by The Cloud Media Group, Limited (ASCAP).
