This concert gives two friends the chance to throw caution to the wind in a free associative program that brings together four centuries’ worth of music, from J. S. Bach to world premieres written by Gabriel Kahane and Timo Andres for one another. At the center of the program is a call-and-response between the two composer-performers, juxtaposing solo piano music with songs for piano and voice that range from Schubert, Schumann, and Thomas Adès, to Jerome Kern and Andrew Norman. Framing this quasi-live mix tape are sets of Britten folk song settings and Ives songs, each nested in the lapidary elegance of Kurtág’s transcriptions of Bach chorale preludes.
