Writing and performing music that moves effortlessly from modernism
to vernacular song, pianist, composer, and singer Gabriel Kahane
returns to Newman Center Presents after appearing in 2011 with his
father, noted pianist and conductor Jeffrey Kahane. Of that concert,
The Denver Post said: “Wondering what Denver’s classical scene needs
more of? Unconventional, imaginative and crowd-pleasing programs
like this one.”
Gabe has established himself as a leading voice among a generation of
young indie composers redefining music for the 21st century. Kahane
performs with a variety of influential artists, including Chris Thile, Brad
Mehldau, and cellist Alisa Weilerstein.
The exciting ensemble of six players who call themselves yMusic
features guitarist/violinist Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Antony and the
Johnsons) and trumpet player CJ Camerieri (Sufjan Stevens, American
Composers Orchestra). yMusic and Gabe will each perform sets of
their own in the first half of the show. Then after intermission Gabe
will join yMusic for an energetic and great time.
