Turning Point Ensemble (TPE) is excited to kick off its 2019/20 Season with a concert of musical innovators present and past, featuring Couloir, the harp and cello duo of Heidi Krutzen and Ariel Barnes. The concert will include two premiere works, The Razor Hiss of a Whisper, by James Maxwell for TPE, Couloir and electronics soundscape and And/Or by Anthony Tan for TPE and electronics. The concert will also include pieces by Ruth Crawford Seeger and Sabrina Schroeder.
Each musician is an acclaimed artist in their own right. Esteemed cellist Ariel Barnes is known for creating a mesmerizing musical experience and has been hailed by Maestro Bramwell Tovey as a “truly inspiring artist… the outstanding Canadian Cellist of his generation” and Heidi Krutzen’s artistry has been described as “captivating, ravishingly coloured and emotionally touching”. They now find themselves working mostly in Europe – Ariel in Germany where he plays with the Nuernberger Symphoniker and Heidi in London where she plays with the Philharmonia Orchestra. The two have become de facto ambassadors for Canadian music, and it seems they have no shortage of opportunities to promote Canada’s composers—who, Krutzen says with no small amount of pride, “are the best”.
Treat yourself to an evening of musical innovators both past and present, performed with the incredible artistry and musicianship of Couloir and the Turning Point Ensemble.
