Bent Duo is a two-man ensemble that explores chamber music for piano and percussion. Performers Bill Solomon and David Friend join forces to present contemporary classics for this instrumentation, work with emerging composers on new works, and investigate new ways of presenting chamber music. The performance is both enjoyable and educational. Composers featured in this program include legends of the twentieth century including Steve Reich, Henry Cowell, and Arvo Pärt; up-and-coming young composers from the USA and abroad Hannah Lash, Ted Hearne, Mayke Nas, and Scott Wollschleger, as well as a new arrangement of piano music by SUNY Orange’s music professor, Chris Parker. Tickets available on line and 1 hour prior to show at the box office. Solomon and Friend will give a master class on Friday, February 9 starting at 11 am in Orange Hall Room 23 entitled Bent Duo: Music Outside the Box. The class is free and open to the public.
