Byron Schenkman and Laura DeLuca, Acorn Dance

Byron Schenkman and Laura DeLuca

Known as one of the top early-music keyboardists in America, Schenkman will be jumping ahead a few centuries and exchanging his usual harpsichord for a piano, in a recital of music by Martinu, Messiaen, Poulenc, and Saint-Saëns—works that will include "some of the luscious sounds of the romantic and impressionist traditions, along with neo-classical elements and even bits of cabaret music." Consummate clarinetist Laura DeLuca (Seattle Symphony, Seattle Chamber Players) will join him. Sherman Clay Showroom, 1624 Fourth Ave., 206-622-7580. $10-$15. 7 p.m. Sun. Sept. 26. GAVIN BORCHERT

Some artists present concerts that are all about "me, me, me," but Aiko Kinoshita has a bigger vision for her ensemble. In 3, a triple bill, she does include the premiere of her "Entry," an exploration of real and metaphorical doorways and what's just beyond them, yet she's sharing the evening with Amii LeGendre and Crispin Spaeth. LeGendre returns the favor, making "The Raft" for Kinoshita and Sarah Gamblin, a duet grappling with the challenge of sharing space. Spaeth brings her troupe with her for an early peek at the upcoming "Night Vision." Velocity MainSpace Theater, 915 E. Pine St., second floor, 206-325-6500. $12-15. 8 p.m. Fri. Sept. 24 - Sat. Sept. 25. SANDRA KURTZ
