Psychedelevator presents a brilliantly curated program of neo-modern cello sonatas, ranging in style from achingly melancholy to inward and sardonic. Our team of in-house composers deliver a triumph of necessary gusto, superbly executed by master cellist Rafael Popper-Keizer and the vivacious pianist Esther Ning Yau. Frankly, unless you are an absolute expert, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more unsubtle and effusive collection of scintillating allegros and thrillingly accented opening dialogs. Each individual piece paints an impressionist landscape, superimposed with an ebullient dash of rapturous beauty and impeccable coloratura. Real Massachusetts cello sonatas – THE BEST!
