Called “fiercely gifted” and “as tenacious and committed an advocate as any composer could dream of,” Sara Cahill 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, Annea Lockwood, and Evan Ziporyn. Kate Stenberg’s violin playing has been described by as “highly virtuosic and deeply communicative…full of character and presence.” Her acclaimed CD, “Scenes from a New Music Séance,” includes several premieres and assorted new music – a genre to which she has been deeply committed for the past 25 years.
