Other Minds Executive & Artistic Director Charles Amirkhanian explains Other Minds' 20th anniversary as an opportunity to reflect on two decades’ worth of prescient programming. "As we look back at the nearly 200 composers we've brought to San Francisco for these gatherings,” say Amirkhanian, “it seemed a good time to tip our hat to some of our most surprising discoveries who have gone on to make signal contributions to international concert life. We'll also pay tribute to the late Peter Sculthorpe, who had accepted an invitation to be with us as our elder statesman, and the legendary Lou Harrison, whose last work was composed for our 2002 festival and our American steel guitar soloist David Tanenbaum, and will be reprised on our opening night."
Following its recent success with OM 19, Other Minds returned for its second year to the incomparable SFJAZZ Center, a landmark venue ideally suited for a landmark event.
