Cornell University’s Sierra Duo
January 28 @ 3:00 pm$10 – $15
Cornell University’s Sierra Duo (John Haines-Eitzen, cello, and Matthew Bengtson, piano) visits UNC for a performance as part of the William S. Newman Artists Series. General admission is $15, and $10 for faculty and staff.
The Sierra Duo formed in 2015 through a multi-year recording project for Albany Records to record all of composer Roberto Sierra’s works for cello and piano.
In reviews, Duo member Matthew Bengtson has been described as “a pianist of extraordinary depth and imagination, whose way with the music is at once unique, satisfying, and interpretively unimpeachable.” (Fanfare Magazine) John Haines-Eitzen’s playing has been described as “romantically yearning” (Columbus Dispatch), “forceful and emotional” (Greensboro News and Record), and “with technical mastery and perceptive maturity” (Trent, Italy, concert review).
