SFCMP Artistic Director Steven Schick performs his first solo San Francisco recital in over 30 years, with works by Karlheinz Stockhausen, Morton Feldman, Alvin Lucier, Vinko Globokar, Brian Ferneyhough, and Iannis Xenakis. This will be Schick’s ONLY west-coast solo recital of a program also presented in New York at the Miller Theater.

The New York Times is choosing the NYC appearance as a top pick for the 13-14 cultural calendar: “Steven Schick. A star of solo percussion music celebrates his 60th birthday with a two-evening immersion in a repertory that is just about as old as he is. The first concert, “Origins,” traces the genre’s roots in works by composers like Stockhausen, Feldman and Xenakis.” Don’t miss out on the chance to experience this wonderful event here in San Francisco!
