::Dialogue:: (Myra Melford and Ben Goldberg)

Pianist Myra Melford and clarinetist Ben Goldberg have been playing together in many settings for ten years now, since Myra moved to Berkeley from New York.

The duo, cryptographically named ::Dialogue::, will present a concert program of new compositions. Melodic, exploratory, lyrical, swinging, virtuosic, this is chamber music for the twenty-first century where composition meets improvisation to surprise and enlighten. Their music combines the precision of classical music with the creative spirit and soul of jazz.

Here are Ben and Myra performing Myra's composition "The Kitchen" in Toulouse in 2013. link
And, at the same concert, here's a Ben Goldberg composition called "You Can't Write a Song Called 'I Heard It On the Radio' Any More." link

Cost: Free, donations accepted.
