Violinist Julie-Anne Derome, pianist Maxim Shatalkin, cellist Gabriel Prynn coming to cultural centre
The sounds of the violin, cello and piano will come together in an upcoming concert of minimalistic compositions at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.
Violinist Julie-Anne Derome, pianist Maxim Shatalkin and cellist Gabriel Prynn will blend classical composers with contemporary artists in Trio Fibonacci: The Giants of Minimalism on Oct. 16.
“The art of the minimalist composers is to create music with great emotion, but using a minimum of notes,” Prynn said. “It’s contemporary music which, thanks to the simplicity of its melodies and its pulsating rhythms, is like an antidote to the stress of daily life.”
With works by Vivaldi, Max Richter, Glass, Nyman, Amar, Eno and Einaudi, Radiohead, as well as numerous other musicians, Trio Fibonacci will play through not only different composers, but also time, weaving all of these unique compositions together.
“All the pieces on the program are our own original adaptations for piano trio, which actually go beyond the minimalist composers to incorporate works by other musicians that we admire like Radiohead and Leonard Cohen,” Prynn said. “It’s really a very special and unique musical moment we’ll experience together in Chilliwack in October.”
A special artist meet and mingle will also take place before the show. Local arts groups and artists are welcome to attend to meet and exchange information. Guests who would like to attend can call the box office with the code “artist” to reserve their spot at the pre-show event, which is at 6:30 p.m.
