COULOIR: Ariel Barnes & Heidi Krutzen

“Truly an inspiring's always an event when he performs. (Ariel Barnes) is the outstanding Canadian Cellist of his generation.” – Maestro Bramwell Tovey

From run-of-the-mill high schooler at Windsor Secondary to 1st Solo Cellist at the Nuremberg Symphony, Ariel Barnes, returns to North Vancouver with BC-native Heidi Krutzen as the duo COULOIR on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 at 1:00 PM at Highlands United Church with the Vancouver Chamber Music Society.

Formerly the principal cellist of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and Vancouver Opera, Ariel Barnes has been described as creating a “mesmerizing musical experience” by combining his “deep personal connection” (Toronto Live Music Report), “luscious tone and technical prowess” (The Vancouver Sun). During his career in Vancouver, he was also co-head of the cello department at the Vancouver Academy of Music and now teaches a private class of students in Nuremberg, Germany.

Equally prestigious, Heidi Krutzen’s “captivating”, “ravishingly colored”, “emotionally touching” harp playing has moved audiences from New York to Tokyo. She is the Principal Harp of one of the world’s top orchestras, the Philharmonia Orchestra in London. Previously, Heidi was Principal Harp of the Vancouver Opera for 20 years. Together, COULOIR was awarded the honour of "2016 Artist of the Year" at the Western Canadian Music Awards for the release of their second recording, MAXWELL, MUHLY & COULOIR.

The Vancouver Chamber Music Society is thrilled to invite COULOIR back to British Columbia at the Highlands United Church in North Vancouver on November 16th. Tickets are only $20 and are available online, by phone, or at the door. Program: Claude Debussy - Cello Sonata Caroline Lizotte - Close for couloir, Op. 48 Manuel de Falla - Suite Populaire Espagnole
