"gibbons vs. Gibbons" - presented by Spectrum Music

Alex Eddington’s string quartet piece gibbons vs. Gibbons will receive a second performance by the Odin Quartet in a concert presented by Spectrum Music in Toronto on Saturday, April 6.

“Jests in Time” is a concert of music cross-pollinating with comedy, so this piece - in which a very serious Renaissance duet for viols (by Orlando Gibbons, naturally) is attacked and invaded by a pair of swooping, whooping gibbon apes - is a natural fit.
