Recording artist, teacher, and composer, Victor Spiegel's study of world music cultures gives his music an added edge and depth. He began composing at 15, after having studied piano for 10 years then attended California Institute of the Arts, where he studied composition with Harold Stein, Harold Budd, Jim Tenney, and others.
A deep love of Indian music brought him to learn from Ravi Shankar, Haral Rao, and Amiyo Das Gupta. Spiegel continued his music education earning a BA at the University of California, and an MA in Music Composition from Mills College, studying with Lou Harrison and Terry Riley.
Spiegel's singular piano sound is a fusion of lush harmonies and rhythms of jazz, classical and musical influences from India, Japan, Indonesia, Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. He continues to score for film, television, theater, dance and other media.

Carool Kersten, of Rambles Magazine on Victor Spiegel
Not only is he a pianist with astounding technical abilities, his interpretations are also highly original and sophisticated. Spiegel's versatility as a composer and arranger is further underscored by his apparent genius for incorporating a wide variety of musical styles from around the world. For Evocation he has borrowed from jazz, American folk, Turkish, Spanish, Jewish as well as mainstream western classical music traditions.
