Poets House, 10 River Terrace (at Murray Street)
Zentripetal–Lynn Bechtold, violin, and Jennifer DeVore, cello, joined by soprano Eleanor Taylor and poet J. Mae Barizo–offers a concert of new poetry-inspired music for the instrumental voices of violin and cello: new compositions by Louis Andriessen, Lynn Bechtold, Matthew Browne, Jennifer DeVore, John King, Lawrence Kramer, and Augusta Read Thomas. Hailed as a“dynamic duo” by Classics Today, “outstanding” by Pizzicato Journal, and “close to the edge and impressive” by Strings magazine, Zentripetal made its debut in 2006. Longtime collaborators violinist Lynn Bechtold and cellist Jennifer DeVore have performed together at venues ranging from the Austrian Cultural Forum and Le Poisson Rouge in Manhattan, to Rolling Orange bicycle shop in Brooklyn, to the Institut Finlandais in Paris, France. They have also performed in concert series including the Music With a View Festival and North River Music Series. Their collaborators include composers, vocalists, pianists, DJs, and a chef, and they released their first CD in September 2014, on Composers Concordance Records, distributed by Naxos.
