    Other Minds presents Rudhyar in Retrospect

    8pm

    Swedenborgian Church, 2107 Lyon Street, San Francisco. (800) 838-3006, and www.otherminds.org.

    Other Minds presents Rudhyar in Retrospect, a celebration of Dane Rudhyar (1895–1985), and Sarah plays several of his solo piano compositions from the 1920s and 1970s.  According to Other Minds, “Rudhyar was a unique figure in 20th-century American culture: a composer, thinker, painter, poet, novelist, and the pre-eminent figure in astrology. He was American modernism's proto-multiculturalist. He connected dissonance to his studies in comparative religion, theosophy, and metaphysics, was a leader and mentor to fellow composers Henry Cowell, Ruth Crawford Seeger and Carl Ruggles, and later influenced a new generation including John Cage, Lou Harrison, James Tenney, and Kyle Gann.” Sarah performs Transmutation: tone sequence in seven movements (1976), Stars from Pentagram No. 3 (1925), and Granites (1929).  David Abel, Julie Steinberg, and the Ives String Quartet also perform.  Before the concert, a pre-concert panel discussion with the composer's widow Leyla Rudhyar Hill and biographer Deniz Ertan (University of Nottingham) is moderated by Other Minds Artistic Director Charles Amirkhanian. A special exhibition of Rudhyar's paintings, manuscripts, and correspondence will be displayed at both concerts.
