Strongbox of American Music

Monday, February 4, 2008 8 pm Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Forum 701 Mission Street at 3rd Street, San Francisco Pre-concert talk begins at 7:15 pm.

Program: Steven Mackey, Indigenous Instruments (1989) (commission) Morton Feldman, Bass Clarinet and Percussion (1981) David Sheinfeld, Dear Theo (1996) (commission) Jorge Liderman, Furthermore… (2006) (world premiere)

Featuring: Carla Kihlstedt, violin

The ensemble bursts forth with three exuberant pieces it originated. Multi-talented, in-demand violinist Carla Kihlstedt solos in the world premiere of Liderman’s compelling new concerto. Longtime harbinger and nurturer of American composers, the ensemble re-examines hard-hitting music from Sheinfeld and Mackey and immerses itself in Feldman’s haunting piece for clarinet and two percussionists.
