Tepfer who will be gracing Wednesday nights with original innovative
performances where he will be joined by some of New York’s greats!

Dan Tepfer says:
The opening of my friend Catinca Tabacaru’s brick-and-mortar gallery in
the Lower East Side, kind of a big deal, seemed to pose a question: how
to mark the event in music? We had collaborated twice before, indirectly,
at the Beethoven Festival in Chicago, where Catinca brilliantly paired the
music being presented with striking and often surprising works of art. The
intimate nature of her new space seemed to suggest something scaled
down, so I suggested one of my favorite modes of music-making: the duo.
Yamaha stepped in and provided a grand piano, and suddenly we had a
series. From June 25th to July 16th, every Wednesday I will be playing with
a different one of New York’s most creative musicians, from legendary
jazz drummer Billy Hart to MacArthur-winning saxophonist Miguel Zenon,
with ICE Ensemble avant-bassoonist Rebekah Heller, and guitar star Gilad
Hekselman in between. I will be writing new music for each one of the
nights. I am excited to get to present it with these great musicians in such
a cool and unexpected new space.
