Violinist Ariel Horowitz and British percussionist-René Collins perform classical works with a contemporary twist. For this tour, Vision Duo will present its “Genre-Fication” program, which explores the sound universe of the violin and percussion. On the program for this performance from the Concert Artists Guild Series, works by Seyfried, Horowitz, JS Bach, Collins and Piazzolla.
Horowitz and Collins formed their duo after becoming co-winners of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition’s Ambassador Award. In doing so, the duo quickly discovered their shared passion for post-genre and contemporary music, promoting systemic change and centering equity and access in musical spaces, according to their artist’s statement. Through an exploration of musical genres and sonic possibilities for violin and percussion, Vision Duo seeks to contribute to the ongoing redefinition of classical music programming and structures.
