Description:

Luciane Cardassi and Katelyn Clark present a diverse program of music for piano, harpsichord and electronics. This concert features an array of contemporary works for the harpsichord and piano. This combination of instruments has fascinated composers since the mid eighteenth century, as demonstrated through the duo work of CPE Bach, and the countless compositions that can be interpreted on either instrument. In our contemporary performance context, the combination of piano and harpsichord is unusual and deeply engaging, uniting and layering timbre and dynamics in completely new ways. This is explored through a variety of pieces on the program, all written by Canadian composers.
