Slide Show Secret
Presented by Washington Composers Forum as part of the Transport series. The Slide Show Secret was established in 2004 by German accordionist Eva Zollner and Icelandic double bassist Kristjan Orri Sigurleifsson and is now situated in Copenhagen, Denmark. Both have a special interest and experience in contemporary music and are attracted by the many unexplored sound possibilities of this unique combination of instruments. For this concert they will play recent works and music chosen from a call for scores. The program includes new music by Icelandic and Danish composers: Ingi Gardar Erlendsson (b. 1980) Molar (2005); Úlfar Ingi Haraldsson (b. 1966) Secret Psalms; Haukur Tómasson (b. 1960) Reaction (2007) (US-premier); Bent Sørensen (b. 1958) Looking on Darkness (2000); Ivo Nilsson (b. 1966) Doppelzimmer (US-premier); Steingrímur Rohloff (b. 1971) Archetyp (2005). The Interval series presents video by filmmaker Jessica Aceti accompanying music by Greg Pliska.
