In the fall of 2017 Philadelphia unveiled a statue of Octavius Catto in front of City Hall. Catto was a 19th Century African-American freedom fighter known for his work as an abolitionist, educator, pioneering baseball player, and civil and voting rights advocate. Uri Caine’s The Passion of Octavius Catto, written for orchestra, choral ensemble, gospel vocalist and jazz trio was commissioned by the Mann Music Center and the Pew Center for the Arts. His ten part composition documents Catto’s life-long activism which was cut short by his murder during the 1871 Election Day violence perpetrated against African-American Philadelphians as they attempted to exercise their right to vote — won two years earlier with the passage of the 15th Amendment to the Constitution.

Caine’s upbringing in Philadelphia provided a fertile environment for the pianist and composer who had opportunities to play in the bands of legends like Hank Mobley, Philly Joe Jones and Mickey Roker, local heroes like Bootsie Barnes and future stars like Grover Washington Jr. As a teenager, Caine studied classical piano with Bernard Peiffer and composition with George Rochberg. He continued studying with Rochberg and the composer George Crumb at the University of Pennsylvania. Caine has continued to work on all sides of the street as a soloist and with his own acoustic and electric ensembles. He’s worked in groups led by John Zorn, Don Byron, Dave Douglas and Arto Lindsay. Caine has been featured with top chamber ensembles including the Arditti String Quartet and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and in performances with and commissions by the Cleveland Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, the BBC Orchestra and the Boston Symphony…
