Arbutus Duo – Postponed to 2023

The duo was featured in the Instrumental Measures concert series, commissioned by KnoxVan. In this virtual concert, the duo premiered Oceanus, a new piece written for viola and piano by Thomas himself and performed the complete Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata.
Thomas and Kitty performed late classical/romantic works from the 19th century for the viola and piano, visiting well-loved pieces as Rachmaninov’s Vocalise, to Schubert’s tragic and whimsical Arpeggione Sonata. Like the rest of the music community, the global pandemic has put their concert series on hold. However they continue to make music and rehearse whenever possible.
