SARA SCHOENBECK (Bassoon) and WAYNE HORVITZ (Piano, Electronics) first met at the “Time Flies Festival” in Vancouver B.C. in 2000. They have been frequent collaborators ever since, including in the bands The Gravitas Quartet, Some Places Are Forever Afternoon, and numerous improvised collectives and performances. They debuted their Duo in 2018.
Sara Schoenbeck dedicates herself to expanding the sound and role of the bassoon in the worlds of classical, contemporary notated and improvised music. The Wire magazine places her in the “tiny club of bassoon pioneers” at work in contemporary music today and the New York Times has called her performances “galvanizing” and “riveting, mixing textural experiments with a big, confident sound.”
Recipient of the 2016 Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, composer, pianist, and keyboardist Wayne Horvitz performs as leader/composer for Snowghost, Sweeter Than the Day, and the Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble. Past ensembles include The President, The Horvitz/Morris/Previte Trio, The New York Composers’ Orchestra, and The Gravitas Quartet.
