Counterpoint - Conrad Tao & Caleb Teicher

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

This not-to-be-missed evening is the product of a brilliant partnership of two rapidly rising stars. Pianist and composer Conrad Tao—a Lincoln Center Emerging Artist, who galvanized New York Philharmonic audiences as the soloist in his Everything Must Go—and Caleb Teicher— Dance Magazine’s Best Emerging Choreographer, whose compelling recent works cited in The New York Times rundown of Best Dance of 2018—are astonishing in Counterpoint, a program of music and dance both composed and improvised featuring works by Ravel, J.S. Bach, Gershwin, and Brahms alongside original compositions.

Conrad Tao is“[t]he kind of musician who is shaping the future of classical music”

 

“‘Caleb is freakishly free of hang-ups and judgment,’ says Ben Folds. ‘That’s rare. He’s not overly precious, yet he gravitates towards something unique every step of the way.’”

Caleb Teicher dances to Jon Batiste’s Nocturne

“AN EXPLOSIVE FORCE…Tao possesses startling technical elan and an ability to communicate clearly, no matter how thorny a score may become. He also has a hefty dash of charm.”
