Community Idea Stations: Matt Haimovitz and Christopher O’Riley Talk About Their New Release “TROIKA”

October 20, 2017

The inventive duo of cellist Matt Haimovitz and pianist Christopher O’Riley is known for their adventurous and wide-ranging recording projects – from Beethoven Sonatas on period instruments to genre-bending arrangements of Radiohead and Arcade Fire. On their new 2-CD set “TROIKA” just released, they explore music of the Slavic soul. The album is anchored by the cello sonatas of the iconic trio of Russian composers – Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich – while also delving into more recently-written, unexpected, and popular works.

It was my pleasure to spend a few moments chatting with Matt and Christopher about their fun collaboration!

Yours in good music,
