Gabriel Kahane has established himself as a leading voice among a generation of young composers redefining music for the 21st century. Hailed by the Los Angeles Times for “an all around dazzling performance” in his orchestral debut of the premiere of his song cycle Orinoco Sketches, with John Adams and the Los Angeles Philharmonic last season, Kahane’s work defies classifications. This season sees Kahane’s Carnegie Hall recital debut in October in addition to appearances at the University Musical Society of Ann Arbor, the Carolina Performing Arts Center, the Library of Congress, and dates with the Alabama Symphony, Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, in the world premiere of a new concerto for Kahane and the orchestra as the culmination of his two-year residency.. His rich and focused sophomore album, Where are the Arms, featured collaborations with Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Antony and the Johnsons, The National), Casey Foubert (Sufjan Stevens, Richard Swift, Pedro The Lion), and Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, St. Vincent), in eleven intricate and literate songs. Launched by his 2006 song cycle Craigslistlieder, Kahane has been commissioned by, among others, Carnegie Hall, Kronos Quartet, American Composers Orchestra, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and the Caramoor Festival. As a theater composer, he has received commissions from the Signature Theater in Arlington, VA and the Williamstown Theater Festival in Massachusetts. An avid chamber musician, Kahane has performed with such artists as Alisa Weilerstein, Jeremy Denk, Jonathan Biss, and the Calder Quartet. A recipient of multiple fellowships from the MacDowell Colony and the Corporation of Yaddo, Kahane makes his home in Brooklyn, New York, in close company with a century-old piano and many books.

“Mr. Kahane wrapped his strong catchy melodies and stylish piano playing in arrangements for strings, winds and brass that revealed a composer’s ear for color, balance and counterpoint. Mr. Kahane’s singing, comfortable and nuanced in past encounters, was a revelation here; at times he combined a pop balladeer’s directness with a jazz singer’s fluid phrasing, reaching new heights of expressiveness.” – The New York Times
