Afi­ciona­dos of con­tem­po­rary mu­sic may want to check out the world pre­miere of Bri­tish com­poser Alexan­der Goehr’s Seven Im­promp­tus for Two Pi­anos, com­posed this year on com­mis­sion from the Santa Fe Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val. Pi­anists Ran Dank and Soyeon Kate Lee do the per­form­ing hon­ors, on a pro­gram that also in­cludes a duo-sonata by Mozart (with the same pi­anists) and Smetana’s String Quar­tet No. 1 (with the Mi­ami String Quar­tet). It takes place at 6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 17. Two fur­ther mod­ern scores get an air­ing at the fes­ti­val this week: the 1981 com­po­si­tion Cha Cha Cha, by the Dan­ish com­poser Poul Rud­ers, which solo per­cus­sion­ist David Tolen will play in a con­cert that be­gins at 6 p.m. on Wed­nes­day, Aug. 19 (shar­ing the bill with pi­ano quar­tets by Mozart and Brahms); and the Nor­we­gian Rolf Wallin’s 1990 piece Stonewave, for three per­cus­sion­ists (Tolen plus Jef­frey Cor­nelius and Scott Ney) at 6 p.m. on Thurs­day, Aug. 20 (with dif­fer­ent pi­ano quar­tets by Mozart and Brahms). All of these con­certs take place at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.).
