Pekka Kuusisto & Gabriel Kahane

Out of the box.

Pekka Kuusisto is an acclaimed violinist. Gabriel Kahane is a composer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist. Both classically trained, both comfortable inside and outside the box, they wander those sometimes strange, sometimes quirky, but always beautiful borderlands where creativity thrives.  

They come together in a new collaboration, commissioned for recording and performance by by an international partnership including ‘Kahane’s work…is, first and foremost, an exercise in lyric beauty. He sings in a warm, resonant, melancholic baritone, which coasts upward into a plaintive falsetto. He plays the piano with a poetic touch…and his music is suffused with idiosyncratic, enriched tonal harmony…he is one of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day.’ – The New Yorker
