Sarah Cahill: Peace Pieces

Presented by Nonsequitur.

Bay Area pianist Sarah Cahill performs new music selected from her commissioning project A Sweeter Music, inspired by this quote from Dr. Martin Luther King’s Nobel Lecture: "We must see that peace represents a sweeter music, a cosmic melody that is far superior to the discords of war." Program: Terry Riley, Be Kind to One Another (Rag); Meredith Monk, Steppe Music; Frederic Rzewski, Peace Dances; Kyle Gann, War Is a Racket!; Larry Polansky, B'Midbar; Jerome Kitzke, There Is a Field; Mamoru Fujieda, The Olive Branch Speaks.
