Q2 Live Concerts: “Twosense”
Twosense: Ashley Bathgate and Lisa Moore (Stephen S. Taylor)
Twosense, cellist Ashley Bathgate and pianist Lisa Moore the Bang on a Can and Cantaloupe Music recording artists presented their New York City debut at (Le) Poisson Rouge on January 4 featuring works by Stephen Feigenbaum, Andy Akiho, Jerome Kitzke, Paul Kerekes, Kate Moore, Leos Janacek and Iva Bittova.
TwoSense, a concert series and commissioning project intended to pair new works with mainstream repertoire, is dedicated to expanding the duo repertoire through developing close working relationships with composers and commissioning pieces specifically for the cello and piano.

Though a brand new ensemble, having performed their first formal concert at Firehouse 12 in October 2010 in New Haven, Lisa Moore and Ashley Bathgate are veterans of the contemporary music scene. They have collaborated with many of today’s foremost composers including John Adams, Martin Bresnick, Ingram Marshall, Terry Riley and have performed with the likes of the London Sinfonietta, the American Composers Orchestra, So Percussion, Signal and the Steve Reich Ensemble.
