Kaveh Karandish, Pianist and Composer
Music Life Love Hope Peace
passion & freedom
Kaveh was born in 1976 in Shiraz; the Persian city of poetry & music. He started keyboard and piano studies at an early age. At age 17 he was deeply touched by the magical combination of piano, bass and drums of some contemporary recording and music became an important part of his life ever since. After years of classical piano as a teenager and winning numbers of piano competitions, he revealed his love and passion for creating by composing orchestral music with grandiose ambitions. After immigrating to California at age 23, he devoted much of his time to studying composition, orchestration & film music at different music institutions including Cal-state Long Beach.

Spirit of Hope
There is something beautiful about artists whose insight into the human condition and world affairs allows them to create works that meet moments of crisis with boldness and the courage to believe in brighter days to come.
