The superb recording of Terry Riley’s composition, “Etude for the Old Country” played on piano for four hands by the Zofo Duet, is filled with the visual sense of musical notes tumbling over each other in rhythmical patterns that are so stunning and unexpected. These images and sound drive the movement and dynamic of ESDC’s 2016 creation.

Press Quote:

Clearly the music inspired Sinopoli’s romp of tilting, rollicking and rolling moves that sent the ensemble on a journey that was at times lively and others sedate…at the ending as others sprawled flat on the floor, [the final dancer] turned about in eerie silence until she joined the others, draping her body among theirs. Sinopoli and her dancers are an artistic treasure, one the region must cherish. ~ Daily Gazette
