Igor Iachimciuc is a composer, cimbalom performer and professor. His compositions comprise a variety of styles and are written for chamber, orchestral, choral, and electronics mediums. A native from the Republic of Moldova, Mr. Iachimciuc studied composition with prominent Moldavian composer Vasile Zagorschi. Later, Mr. Iachimciuc received a PhD in composition from the University of Utah. His main professors included Morris Rosenzweig, Miguel Chuaqui, and Steve Roens. Mr. Iachimciuc writes music that is often inspired by poetry, visual arts, math, and folklore from different parts of the world. His music draws on an eclectic mix of sounds and usually features some combination of bright colors, propulsive energy, a healthy dose of lyricism, and the fragmentation of musical ideas.

Igor Iachimciuc's works have been purchased by the National RTV Company and performed by various Moldavian ensembles, as well as by San Francisco's Earplay New Music Ensemble, Flexible Music, Canyonlands, New York New Music Ensemble and NOVA Chamber music series.
