Counterpoint: Structure and improvisation

Past event (2013)

Inspiration can be undeniably felt in a heartbeat, while invention is tested by time and its fundamental value to those that build upon it. Pioneering composers of the Baroque era provide the foundation for a program that explores the richly varied musical language of the present: composers achieving unique designs, unified by reverence of a shared heritage. Jay Campbell and Conor Hanick explore the possibilities of the piccolo cello and harpsichord, Baroque ancestors of the modern cello and piano, and collaborate with composers Wei-Chieh Lin and David Fulmer to create a program that unites Baroque and modern instruments and repertoire, including new works for the duo by Lin and Fulmer.


Friday, March 1 | 8:00pm

Jay Campbell and Conor Hanick perform works for cello/piccolo cello and piano/harpsichord, juxtaposing compositions from the Baroque period with world premiere performances of new works by David Fulmer and Wei-Chieh Lin.
