The Black Cedar Trio brings their award-winning blend of flute, cello, and guitar to Oakland’s Octopus Literary Salon. Music of Bach, Paganini, Piazzolla, plus new music by San Jose composer Andre Gueziec and Chilean composer Javier Contreras delivers expressive artistry for your soul and rapid fire technical brilliance for your ears. After the trio’s recent San Francisco show, Stephen Smoliar of The Rehearsal Studio blog wrote, “Contreras’ music was an examination of not only the unique sonorities of each of the three instruments but also a rich study of how those sonorities could be blended in different combinations…clearly a major undertaking; but those willing to listen to it attentively were richly rewarded.”
