Live Music Celebrating the de Young’s Permanent Collection

Erik Jekabson

Live music celebrating the de Young’s permanent collection by Erik Jekabson's String-tet. This ensemble features Jekabson on trumpet, Michael Zilber on saxophone, Mads Tolling on violin, Charith Premawardhana on viola, John Wiitala on bass, and Smith Dobson on drums and vibraphone.

Erik Jekabson's String-tet moves in many different musical directions, veering from jazz to classical, and from funk to avante-garde. Jekabson composes for the specific players in the ensemble and explores the different sounds and textures of their unique instrumentation. The String-tet's latest CD Anti-Mass, comprises Jekabson's compositions inspired by artwork in the de Young's permanent collection.
