Pianist Christopher O’Riley and cellist Matt Haimovitz explore the lyrical and virtuosic properties of their instruments in a collaboration that weaves in and out of classical and pop music genres.

Expect works by the likes of Johann Sebastian Bach and Giovanni Gabrieli, Radiohead and Arcade Fire, Astor Piazzolla and Igor Stravinsky.
