Review: spectacular feats of multi-instrumentalism. Unique sound worlds. An aural spectacle. A duet takes on music written for trios, & every piece performed here was commissioned by the duo. Gebrian plays viola. Holt plays piano & percussion, sometimes simultaneously. They have been collaborating for 20 years. I will do my best to describe the music.
