Renowned and "fiercely gifted" (New York Times) pianist Sarah Cahill performs a solo concert featuring works by composers Lou Harrison, Jon Scoville, Paul Dresher, and Ruth Crawford. A rare opportunity to hear Cahill play in the unique resonance of the new BAMPFA building.

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, premiered, and recorded numerous compositions for solo piano. Composers who have dedicated works to her include John Adams, Terry Riley, Frederic Rzewski, Pauline Oliveros, Yoko Ono, and Ingram Marshall, and she has also premiered pieces by Lou Harrison, Julia Wolfe, Toshi Ichiyanagi, George Lewis, Leo Ornstein, and many others.
