Heinrich von Biber and Conlon Nancarrow were composers who took virtuosity to unprecedented heights. Biber experimented with differently tuned strings to expand the possibilities of the violin, while Nancarrow wrote for the mechanical player piano, as his compositions surpassed human performance capability.
This program juxtaposes Biber sonatas with a selection of Nancarrow Player Piano Studies.
BAC Salon: The Originals is a series of music by composers with uncompromising visions, performed by some of today's most respected musicians in an intimate salon setting.
