Music on Main’s Modulus Festival closes with the debut recital of Canada’s newest duo, Couloir, followed by an unforgettable set by Gabriel Kahane with special guests Veda Hille and the Arneis Quartet.
Couloir is cellist Ariel Barnes and harpist Heidi Krutzen, two of Canada’s most expressive musicians. Their Modulus Festival performance features a world premiere by composer Jocelyn Morlock, a stunning piece of vituosity from Russian composer Valeri Kikta, and Nico Muhly‘s Clear Music for cello, harp and celeste.
Gabriel Kahane is a modern day troubadour, who makes and performs music that communicates honesty and without pretense. A multi-instrumentalist and singer, he performs a set of original tunes with the Arneis Quartet and is joined by Vancouver’s music legend, Veda Hille.
