Kate Porter and Russel Kotcher @ Artscape/Exotic Hypnotic, Langsdale Auditorium, July 21, 2007, Baltimore, MD
Kate Porter: cello
Russel Kotcher: violin
An exquisite set. Porter and Kotcher put on a display of intelligent interplay as they played a set of free improvisation with modern (or "post classical") technique as a common reference point. By watching one another they would time several gestures in a manner that cuts out the "middle men" of composer and conductor. These were well-formed compositions spun out in real time by a pair of virtuosos.
