San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

Composers Inc.

Formed in 1984 to present the music of living American composers, Composers Inc. seeks to increase public awareness of contemporary American music. This concert will feature the first US performance of Seven Faces of the World by Joseph Kolkovich, winner of the Lee Ettelson Composers Award. This rich and fascinating work for string trio will be performed by members of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and San Francisco Ballet Orchestra. Composer Zibuokle Martinaityte returns this season with her new piece Inhabited Silences for violin, ‘cello and piano. The New Pacific Trio will perform this sometimes reflective, sometimes whimsical work. Two more premieres on the program are Preludes for piano by Jeffrey Miller, performed by Eliane Lust, and Robert Greenbergs song cycle So Let Us Live–Really Live! by baritone Allen Shearer and pianist Lino Rivera.
