Cellist Matt Haimovitz and pianist Christopher O’Riley open the Artist Series Oct. 27 in an eclectic collaboration that crisscrosses classical and pop music genres. The two join together to explore the lyrical and virtuosic properties of their instruments in a program that showcases their talents as collaborators and soloists, defining what it means to be an artist in the 21st century. Their program will feature works by Bach and Gabrielli, Radiohead and Arcade Fire, Piazzolla and Stravinsky.
“O’Riley played so delicately that he seemingly left no fingerprints on the keys, yet his melodies sung out with sweet clarity.”
—The Washington Post
“Haimovitz played with great concentration, nobility of expression and technical panache.”
