New Works Calgary 32nd Season - Velocity | Harmonium


Shawn Mativetsky and Xenia Pestova

This unique duo explores the combination of Indian tabla improvisation with western new music explorations with piano, harmonium and toy piano, and brings a fascinating duality to the stage as two different sound worlds, idioms, and traditions meet. With music by Tina Pearson, Heather Hindman, Monica Pearce, Tawnie Olson, Ed Bennett, Nicole Lizée and Shawn Mativetsky.
