Maya Beiser: All Vows

Maya Beiser has captivated audiences worldwide with her virtuosity, eclectic repertoire, and relentless quest to redefine the boundaries of her instrument. Inspired by the Jewish tradition of atoning for one’s sins by asking God for forgiveness, her new program, All Vows, goes to that juncture where spiritual and traditional culture meet contemporary, urban, and popular culture. With Beiser performing on acoustic and electric cello and working with cutting edge technology, each original composition in the program will attempt to take the cello on an unpredictable journey of sounds, utilizing the tradition of classical musical form combined with rock, blues, and electronic music. With haunting imagery by renowned experimental filmmaker and long-time collaborator, Bill Morrison, All Vows is a rich and engaging multimedia experience.
