Songs written, commissioned for and performed by Gabriel Kahane

A set of brand-new, hot-off-the-press songs written expressly for singer/pianist/songwriter/composer Gabriel Kahane to perform. Composers include Timo Andres, Andrew Norman, Yotam Haber, Joseph Hallman, Chris Thile, Shara Worden, Paola Prestini, Brett Banducci, and Ted Hearne. The evening will also include a set of works written by Mr. Kahane himself, including the world premiere of a new work. Kahane will also sing and perform Schumann’s song cycle Dichterliebe from the piano, offering an innovative and personal interpretation of this extraordinary piece.
