March 11, 2010 at 9pm

After meeting this summer at the Orford Sound Art workshop in Canada, cellist Emilie Girard-Charest and guitarist Kobe Van Cauwenberghe decided to join forces and put together an exciting and challenging program of contemporary works for guitar and cello. Not to be missed!

Helmut Lachenmann – “Pression”
Brian Ferneyhough – “Kurze Schatten II (movements 2,3 and 5)
José Maria Sanchez-Verdu – “Nada”
André Hamel – “Interférence sur le Crin”
Simon Steen-Andersen -“In-Side-Out-side-In”

About the artists:
Cellist Emilie Girard-Charest stands out for her eclecticism. She is as involved with traditional classical music as she is with contemporary repertoires and interdisciplinary projects. She has been able to work with artists of every stripe, for example, with choreographer Andrew Tay, as well as the Instant, Éponyme and Émergence theatre companies, interdisciplinary artist Vicky Tansey, and publishers Poètes de Brousse. With flautist Yuki Isami and harpsichordist Jean-Willy Kunz, in 2004 she founded the Allogène ensemble, a group with varying forces dedicated to mainly Baroque and contemporary music, as well as improvisation. Girard-Charest is continuing her education at the Montreal Conservatory under the supervision of Denis Brott.

Kobe Van Cauwenberghe (Antwerp, Belgium) started his guitar studies at the conservatory of Antwerp and recieved his master degree at the conservatory of Ghent where he studied with Tom Pauwels. He currently lives in New York City, persuing a masterdegree in contemporary music performance at the Manhattan School of Music. He performed both in Europe and the US, as solist and in several chambermusic formations and ensembles such as Champ d’Action, Nadar, ZWERM, International Ensemble Modern Academy, Either/Or Ensemble, Signal, Callithumpian Consort, a.o. He has worked with such composers as Vinko Globokar, Richard Barrett, Chaya Czernowin and Brian Ferneyhough. Mr. Van Cauwenberghe is winner of the 2008 Fuchs chamber music competition and a fellow of the Belgian American Educational Foundation.
