8pm - 50 Miniatures for Improvising Quartet

Jennifer choi, violin

Sylvie Courvoisier, piano

Trevor Dunn, bass

Michael Sarin, percussion

Fifty is a series of miniatures ­ some as brief as 7 seconds ­ that are snapshots of stylistic variety. The piece was composed for a commission from the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco in 2008 for the museum opening. Fifty has never been performed live, this will be the performance premier.


10pm - Vanishing Point (Premier)

Craig Taborn, piano

Erik Friedlander, cello


The first time these two great improvisors have performed together. Come and hear the fireworks.
