Uri Caine came to prominence in the 1990s, establishing himself on New York City’s downtown music scene and aligning himself with the circle of experimental musicians from the Knitting Factory jazz club. In 2003, he received widespread acclaim for his daring adaptation of Verdi’s Othello, which he re-worked as curator for the 50th Venice Biennale, where the piece debuted. Later recorded as a studio album, The Othello Syndrome earned Caine a 2009 Grammy Award nomination in the category of Best Classical Crossover Album. Cain has recorded 33 albums as leader and has performed at jazz and classical music festivals worldwide. This workshop is presented in co-production with American Spring International Music Festival.
