Premiere of Salzman’s Five Dances for String Quartet

On October 30th, Eric Salzman’s Five Dances for String Quartet, based on prepared piano music written in the 1940s by John Cage, will be performed for a concert of Cage’s music at Bard College as part of a three-day symposium on Cage, celebrating the Cage Trust at Bard. Read the full press release (PDF). Note that, although individual pieces have been performed separately (Totem Ancestor was widely performed and recorded by the Kronos Quartet), this is the premiere of the set as a whole.
