My name is Ljova (a.k.a. Lev Zhurbin) and I'm a composer, violist and arranger, based primarily in New York City. Amongst my recent projects are collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, the Kronos Quartet, Osvaldo Golijov, Jay-Z, Matmos, and others. I've also written quite a few film scores. For more information about my work, mp3s, latest shows, and updates, please visit my website, www.Ljova.com. You can also find me on MySpace.
This blog - The SoupASonic - will focus primarily on my two avid passions - the semantics of good music, and the pursuit great soup. Occasionally, I'll discuss my latest gear.
