Grammy-Winning Cellist, Matt Haimovitz, Joins Forces with Genius Jazz Composer-Performer Pianist, Vijay Iyer

This special event showcases performances by both artists of their own compositions, alongside the works by Zakir Hussein, John McLaughlin, J. S. Bach, and others. The aim is to create a program of unprecedented virtuosity and depth. Duets are the centerpiece, but also expect solo performances by each of these mesmerizing players.

Matt Haimovitz – renowned as a musical pioneer, cellist

Matt Haimovitz has inspired classical music lovers and countless new listeners by bringing his artistry to concert halls and clubs. Practically, any place where passionate music can be heard. Praised by the New Yorker as “remarkable virtuoso” who “never turns in a predictable performance,” Haimovitz brings a fresh ear to familiar repertoire.

Vijay Iyer – Grammy-nominated composer-pianist

Vijay Iyer was described by Pitchfork as “one of the most interesting and vital young pianists in jazz today.” He has been voted DownBeat Magazine’s Artist of the Year three times—in 2016, 2015 and 2012. Iyer was named Downbeat’s 2014 Pianist of the Year, a 2013 MacArthur Fellow, and a 2012 Doris Duke Performing Artist.
