Cellist Paul Wiancko and Sandbox Percussion’s percussionist Ian David Rosenbaum explore rarely performed cello and percussion repertoire

Experience an exhilarating fusion of percussion and cello as our 2023/24 Musician-In-Residence, the Kronos Quartet cellist and composer Paul Wiancko, is joined by Sandbox Percussion and Percussion Collective musician Ian David Rosenbaum. Showcasing a remarkable and rarely explored repertoire, this performance features an array of compositions that focus on the intricate interplay, powerful rhythms, and emotive expressiveness inherent in this unique musical pairing. This distinctive program includes Andy Akiho’s ground-breaking masterpiece “21,” a brilliant exploration of 21st-century rhythmic complexity, enigmatic melodic lines, and a boundary-defying utilization of percussive elements, challenging conventional expectations of rhythm and structure, presenting a potent mix of modernity and emotion that promises to captivate. Accompanying this work are original and traditional compositions along with Olivier Messiaen’s transcendent “Louange à l’Éternité de Jésus,” a movement from the renowned “Quatuor pour la fin du temps” with its ethereal, slow-moving cello line underpinned by a percussive accompaniment that unfolds like a celestial, infinite echo. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness the creative synergy between two extraordinary artists as they push the boundaries of traditional chamber music.
