Jeffrey Millers intriguing Preludes, performed by piano virtuoso Eliane Lust, and David Biedenbenders kinetic Images for saxophone and piano complete the program. Composers, Inc. was formed in 1984 to present the music of living American composers, and seeks to increase public awareness of contemporary American music. Directed by five San Francisco Bay Area composers, they present three concerts each year in San Francisco.
