Soprano Cheryl Keller and the Del Sol String Quartet present the American concert premiere of Michael Nyman’s “The Ballad of Kastriot Rexhepi” for soprano and string quartet, with a text by visual artist Mary Kelly, whose installation of a room-sized lint sculpture was the inspiration for the composition. Nyman first came to prominence as a minimalist composer in the 1970s. He has also composed the music for several films by Peter Greenaway. This was his first appearance in San Francisco since 1994.
