Event Information

Pianist Sarah Cahill and Friction Quartet join forces for a concert presented by Old First Concerts. Together, Cahill and the Friction Quartet will give the world premiere of Bay Area composer Max Stoffregen’s The Gila: Mesa, River, and Mountain. This new piano quintet was inspired by Stoffregen’s foot travels through Arizona and New Mexico along the Grand Enchantment Trail and portrays the mystery and vitality of this great landscape through the dimension of sound. The Friction Quartet also presents the world premiere of a new string quartet, Family Group with Aliens, by British composer Piers Hellawell and Geoffrey Gordon’s ABACISCUS.
