Event Description: ERIC BYERS, SOLO CELLO
An evening of music for acoustic and electric cello
Praised as “ideally eloquent” by the Los Angeles Times, cellist Eric Byers beguiles audiences as a soloist, chamber musician, and composer. In his evening for solo cello at Harrison House, Eric will perform acoustic works by Britten, Colombi, Saariaho, and Salonen followed by cello with electronics that submerges the audience in atmospheric sound, including a world premiere by Ceiri Torjussen and Byers’ own compositions.
First inspired to compose during his artist residency at Harrison House in 2012, Byers’ works have since been performed at Kennedy Center, SummerStage in New York, and Hear Now Festival in Los Angeles. Sybarite5’s album ‘Outliers’ featuring two of Byers’ pieces, debuted at #1 on the classical billboard charts. As a founding member of the Calder Quartet, Byers has appeared at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Wigmore Hall, Disney Hall and major international venues and festivals. Chamber music collaborators have included Joshua Bell, Edgar Meyer, Menahem Pressler, Joseph Kalichstein, and Claude Frank. Byers has conducted masterclasses at The Juilliard School, Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Cleveland Institute of Music, UCLA, and USC.
