The cello quartet Holes in the Floor assembled at the New England Conservatory of Music (NEC) under a shared vision: to explore and communicate the beauty and vitality of classical music through the voice of four cellos. Holes in the Floor will perform Suite No.2 for Cello Quartet - inspired by the unaccompanied suites by J.S. Bach and described by its composer, Jermy Crosmer: "too intricate to sight-read on the street, but at the same time they present that groovy, down-to-earth feel" - on their Davis, CA debut.
Among recently completed transcriptions of the beloved piano repertoire by the ensemble members and their close colleagues, the ensemble will also present Laszlo Varga's arrangement of J.S. Bach's Ciaccona from Violin Partita No. 2 and Alexandre Tansman's Deux mouvements pour quatour de violoncelle. Holes in the Floor will lead you on an aural voyage through cherised classics to hot-off-the-press works with not one, but FOUR cellos!
