Jana Luksts, shares the stage with Adam Sherkin in two solo sets that celebrate New York-based composers from CUNY's composition faculty.  Featuring Jason Eckhardt, Jeff Nichols and Phyllis Chen. Works for piano and media are included here, as well as a four-hand piece by Jeff Nichols. Canadians Julia Mermelstein and Keiko Devaux are highlighted; a new work for toy piano and grand piano will be premiered by George Katehis. Adam Sherkin gives the US premiere of his solo toy piano cycle, "Southern Frames." From Julia Mermelstein: "Only Edges explores the intensity of a barren landscape—overwhelmed by extreme heat—exposing the vulnerable to frequent disturbance. There is a sense of desolate space that always lingers throughout the transformations that occur." ​
