It's amazing what you can say just by juxtaposition. For example, that cello virtuoso and occasionally straight up trippy musician Matt Haimovitz—as seen here
is performing this cello concerto (Shostakovich No. 1, as seen here with Tina Guo and the State of Mexico National Symphony)
for free with City Music Cleveland in churches around town this weekend.
I heard him Wednesday night at Fairmount Presbyterian Church in Cleveland Heights. You like heavy metal? You think words like "muscle" and "vicious" belong in discussions of classical music? Check this out. Remaining performances are:
7:30 p.m. Friday at Willoughby United Methodist Church, 15 Public Square, Willoughby
7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Shrine of St. Stanislaus, 3649 E. 65th St., Slavic Village
2 p.m. Sunday at Elyria First United Methodist Church, 320 Middle Ave Elyria.
