Eldar Djangirov is one of the great prodigies of this generation. Beginning piano at 3 in his native Krgystan, he was brought by his parents to Kansas City at 10, principally to be surrounded by the jazz culture. He went on to study at Interlochen, as well as in San Diego and at the Thornton school of music at USC, before moving to New York. He has released 7 albums, all of which have garnered critical acclaim and he has received one Grammy Nomination.

“Eldar combines Art Tatum’s superhuman velocity with echoes of Oscar Peterson’s grandeur” —Stephen Holden, “Leaving Them All in the Dust”, New York Times

“...his command of the instrument is beyond staggering.”
—Bob Doershuk, Downbeat

“He’s a genius beyond most young people I’ve heard.”
—Dave Brubeck in the New York Times
