In 2008, the New York Times wrote about Caleb Burhans, “In New York’s trendy new-music world, he is everywhere, working with just about everybody as both performer and composer.”
The world premiere of a work commissioned from Burhans, alongside other new works that Cleveland Orchestra trombonist Richard Stout recorded for an upcoming Albany Records release, can be heard on a recital by Stout and pianist Christina Dahl on Wednesday, September 28, at 7:30 p.m. at Kulas Hall of the Cleveland Institute of Music.
All of the works they recorded are fantasy pieces, of which they will perform four. Two ballades are also on the recital, which is free and open to the public.
