Often cited as a cross-disciplinary musician, Gabriel Kahane is more a musician with no borders. He not only crosses genres, he helps bring down the boundaries between them, cleverly fusing elements of multiple styles into one uniquely his own.

KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen discusses Gabriel’s stance on music genres and his emotional ties to places, reflected in his songs.

Listen-in to learn more about this rapidly rising young composer, who is conducted by his father, Jeffrey Kahane, for the first time this weekend. Tickets to LACO’s final 2011-12 season Orchestral Series concert are still available online.
