Maya Beiser and Michael Harrison: Time Loops

Maya Beiser, cello
Michael Harrison, piano

 

Cellist Maya Beiser, hailed by The Washington Post as the “hot young diva of avant-garde cello,” returns to DC to perform music from her latest album, Time Loops, a collaboration with composer/pianist Michael Harrison on Cantaloupe Music. Time Loops include the mystical minimalist music of Arvo Pärt alongside Harrison’s evocative Ragas and his epic multi-cellos piece, Just Ancient Loops — a piece that unveils every aspect of the cello, from its most glorious and mysterious harmonics to earthy, rhythmic pizzicatos.
