last night shannon and i had our (mostly) monthly date night, and we had the opportunity to head up to bucknell for a little culture. we got to see maya beiser, a cellist who is incredibly accomplished, do a multimedia concert with video. it featured modern pieces, and some of it was so experimental as to be nearly devoid of any sense of melody (at least to these ears), but most of it was really beautiful, including a piece by one of my favorite modern composers, arvo part.
for her encore, she did something a little less highbrow, and did this rendition of led zeppelin's kashmir, which was alot of fun. enjoy.
