Pieces of Eight...Cellos!
Cellos octets and ensembles performed by eight of Alaska’s finest cellists!
Villa-Lobos’ iconic masterwork Bachianas Brasileiras No.5 anchors an afternoon celebrating the rich tone and versatility of the cello. This is music to suit all temperaments, from the Baroque meets Brazil of the Villa-Lobos to a world premiere by Alaskan composer Philip Munger.
Brilliant cello octets and smaller ensembles, including a gorgeous baroque trio performed on period instruments and bows. And, what would our Pieces of Eight season be without music from Pirates of the Caribbean?
Mary Alice Donaldson
With: Kate Egan, soprano
