Sarah Cahill, recently called “a sterling pianist and an intrepid illuminator of the classical avant-garde” by The New York Times, has commissioned, premiered, and recorded numerous compositions for solo piano. Over forty composers have dedicated works to Cahill, including John Adams, Terry Riley, Pauline Oliveros, Julia Wolfe, Yoko Ono, Annea Lockwood, and Ingram Marshall. Cahill had the opportunity to work closely with composer Lou Harrison, and has championed many of his works for piano, including his Piano Concerto which she performed with the La Jolla and Berkeley Symphonies. She visited him several times at his home in Aptos, California, and copied rare scores from his collection. She has also premiered pieces by Toshi Ichiyanagi, George Lewis, Leo Ornstein, and many others. Her discography includes over twenty albums on the New Albion, CRI, New World, Tzadik, Albany, Innova, Cold Blue, Other Minds, and Pinna labels. Cahill’s radio show, Revolutions Per Minute, can be heard every Sunday evening from 8 to 10 pm on KALW, 91.7 FM in San Francisco. Cahill is on the piano faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory and curates a monthly series of new music concerts at the new Berkeley Art Museum.
