Uri Caine - Reimagining the Classics

Grammy-nominated pianist and composer Uri Caine uses classical music as a springboard for jazz improvisation.

Caine’s collaborations extend from the Beaux Arts Trio to John Zorn, and from the Woody Herman Band to the Moscow Chamber Orchestra. The New York-based musician studied composition with George Crumb and George Rochberg, and is lauded for his albums of improvisations on works by Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, Mahler and Schumann.

This exciting solo appearance includes improvisations on works by Scarlatti, Mozart, Mahler and Albéniz. Caine will also perform some jazz standards, along with his own original compositions.

Beautiful borrowings, ceaseless invention, wit and expertise.
