Sarah Cahill: O1C Artist-in-Residence
Sarah Cahill, piano
This performance is made possible in part by a grant from the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
Sarah Cahill ends her O1C Artist-in-Residence series with a selection of compositions that have been dedicated to her over the years, including Frederic Rzewski's Snippets 2, Terry Riley's Be Kind to One Another, John Adams' China Gates, Pauline Oliveros' Quintuplets Play Pen, Paul Dresher's Two, Entwined, Maggi Payne's Holding Pattern, Kyle Gann's On Reading Emerson, and Annea Lockwood's RCSC. Cahill was 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. Composers who have dedicated works to her include John Adams, Terry Riley, Frederic Rzewski, Pauline Oliveros, Annea Lockwood, and Evan Ziporyn. Recent appearances include a concert at San Quentin of the music Henry Cowell wrote while incarcerated there, Lou Harrison’s Piano Concerto with Steven Schick and the La Jolla Symphony, four performances at the San Francisco Symphony’s Soundbox, a residency at Dickinson College, and concerts in Maui, Miami, and at MIT. She is in the process of recording a two-CD set of Terry Riley’s solo and four-hand music with pianist Regina Schaffer for the Irritable Hedgehog label. Her radio show, Revolutions Per Minute, can be heard every Sunday evening from 8 to 10 pm on KALW, 91.7 FM in San Francisco. She is on the faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory and will curate a monthly series of new music concerts at the new Berkeley Art Museum when it opens in early 2016.
