Elevate Ensemble Low Hanging Fruit

Sometimes what’s easiest isn’t always what’s best. That theme is explored in this program of virtuosic chamber works that push the performer to the extreme. Michael Gilbertson’s Low Hanging Fruit serves as the title piece, using musical concepts to illustrate the story of the garden of Eden. Also on the program are Gyorgy Ligeti’s Etudes for Piano, one of the most difficult pieces in the 20th-century piano canon, as well as Bela Bartok’s jazz-inspired Contrasts and a Balkan-themed cello solo work by Serbian-Canadian composer Ana Sokolović.
