Uri Caine is known for his jazz permutations of music by classical composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Mahler, and Bach. Come hear him mix it up with his own ensemble in a preview to the World Premiere of his Double Trouble with American Composers Orchestra on Friday, February 8 (at Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall) and Sunday, February 10 (at the Annenberg Center in Philadelphia).
This Composers OutFront! event is presented by American Composers Orchestra, the only orchestra of its kind dedicated to performing the music of American composers.
"Uri Caine [is] a ferociously versatile jazz musician known for playing fluid funk, fusion and traditional jazz as a fixture in New York's downtown music scene." -- New York Times
