21st Century Cello: VC2 Cello Duo

Sunday, March 8, 2020 - 7:30pm

Festival Hall

Music from the 21st Century written by cellists, for cellists. The programme will focus on five works by Canadian cellist-composers commissioned by VC2, each inspired by one of the Beethoven Sonatas for Cello and Piano. These pieces were commissioned for the duo by their former teacher and Albertan cello virtuoso Shauna Rolston-Shaw. The five works will be contrasted with two newly commissioned works by esteemed Canadians Kelly-Marie Murphy and Vincent Ho as well as other cello centric works from at home and abroad that explore the vast sonic capabilities of the cello duo.
