Ars Nova Workshop, in partnership with Poland’s Jazztopad Festival, presents a very special evening with Philadelphia native Uri Caine and the Lutoslawski Quartet. Pianist Caine will perform solo as well as his work Space Kiss (2017) with the Lutosławski Quartet.

Over the years, Caine has led his own ensembles performing arrangements of Mahler, Wagner, Mozart, Verdi, Schumann and Bach. He recently composed The Passion of Octavius Catto for the Philadelphia Orchestra with a gospel choir celebrating the life of murdered Philadelphia civil rights leader Octavius Catto. Caine has also worked in groups led by Don Byron, Dave Douglas, John Zorn, Arto Lindsay, Sam Rivers, and Barry Altschul, among many others.

The Lutosławski Quartet performs contemporary music as well as recently commissioned pieces, and focuses on showcasing Polish music, including works by Lutosławski, Bacewicz, Szymanowski, and also compositions by one of the group members – Marcin Markowicz. An ensemble made up of versatile and open-minded artists, they blend the contemporary repertoire with the gems of classical, Romantic and jazz music. They have worked with Charles Lloyd, Vijay Iyer, Kenny Wheeler, Sylvie Courvousier, Mark Feldman, James Brandon Lewis and other jazz greats and recorded the world’s first album of Witold Lutosławski’s chamber works for the Accord label.
