Some combinations exhibit a natural harmony. They go together, as they say, like bread and butter, milk and cookies, and the ever popular peaches and cream. And it's not just dairy products either — in music we have the rattle and drum, the harp and flute, guitar and bass, and our subject on this program : piano and cello.
The rhythmic clarity and endless harmonic potential of the piano, combined with the soulful, singing lines of the cello, has inspired some of our greatest composers. And because cellists often play piano as well, today some of them are playing both instruments on their recordings. On this transmission of Hearts of Space, we summon the muse of complementarity, on a program called AFFINITY, with music by MARTIN TILLMAN, TIM STORY, DAVID DARLING, VASSILIS TSABROPOULOS, JAMI SIEBER, and ARVO PART.
