Kammerraku III
Kammerraku III brings together two classic chamber music ensembles  the string quartet and the Japanese sankyoku  for the world premiere of Dream Corner, by James Nyoraku Schlefer. This KSA commission is a septet for string quartet, shakuhachi, koto, shamisen and voice. It's a distinctive combination of two classic chamber music ensembles, the string quartet and the classic Japanese sankyoku, and it may be the first piece ever written for this combination of instruments. Set to two poems by Ono no Komachi, Dream Corner tells the story of two lovers who can only meet when they dream together. The program will also feature the Cassatt performing Dvořák's "American Quartet" and the traditional Edo period trio "Yachio Jishi"  Lion of Eight Thousand Generations, for shakuhachi, koto and shamisen.

Cassatt Quartet: Muneko Itami, Jennifer Leshnower, Sarah Adams, Nicole Johnson
Ensemble KSA: Masayo Ishigure, Koto; Yoko Reikano Kimura, Shamisen; James Nyoraku Schlefer, Shakuhachi
