SF Chamber Music Faculty Artist Series: Sarah Cahill

Sunday, December 13, 2020 - 2:00 pm | Cost: FREE


Sarah Cahill, recently called “a sterling pianist and an intrepid illuminator of the classical avant-garde” by The New York Times and “a brilliant and charismatic advocate for modern and contemporary composers” by Time Out New York, has commissioned and premiered over sixty compositions for solo piano. Composers who have dedicated works to Cahill include John Adams, Terry Riley, Frederic Rzewski, Pauline Oliveros, Julia Wolfe, Yoko Ono, Annea Lockwood, and Ingram Marshall. Keyboard Magazine writes, “Through her inspired interpretation of works across the 20th and 21st centuries, Cahill has been instrumental in bringing to life the music of many of our greatest living composers.” She was named a 2018 Champion of New Music, awarded by the American Composers Forum (ACF).

On tonight’s concert, you’ll hear a world premiere of a piece by alumnus Riley Nicholson ‘16 and a work by George Lewis, a multi-hyphenate trombonist/composer/software designer. Also on the program are works by Tania Leon, Reena Esmail, and Aida Shirazi.
