Pianist Sarah Cahill will perform Lou Harrison's Concerto for Piano with Javanese Gamelan on November 8th at the Hertz Concert Hall. Cahill joins forces with Gamelan Sari Raras, a performing ensemble in the Department of Music at UC Berkeley focusing on traditional Javanese gamelan music and contemporary works. Lou Harrison's compositions for Indonesian gamelan and Western instruments represent his distinctive transcultural voice and musical synthesis between the Western and Indonesian classical styles. Performances of the Concerto for Piano with Javanese Gamelan are rare, since it requires a radical retuning of the piano to match the gamelan's temperament.
