Toncheva Maciak Duo; violin & marimba
 
Rob Maciak, marimba & Eva Toncheva, violin

Rob Maciak is proud to return to the ProArts Society’s concert series for the fifth time – this time with an exciting new duo project. Blending the vibrant sound of virtuosic violin playing with the exotic, Guatemalan tone of the westernized marimba, this duo will present new sonic settings of music that ranges from the quick and dynamic harmonies of Johann Sebastian Bach to the dark and seductive Latin American take on tango music of Astor Piazolla.

Eva Toncheva brings her portfolio of experience performing in orchestra and chamber projects around Europe and North America, while Rob Maciak contributes the knowledge he has acquired from doing West African and East Asian world music engagements. Both are classically trained musicians who regularly play shows with professional symphony orchestras in Alberta and British Columbia, while both also enjoy venturing beyond the borders of the traditional to embody the flare of colourful music from around the world.

This show promises to be forty minutes of engaging entertainment, with each player also performing unaccompanied solos that highlight the purest nature of their respective instruments. Eva and Rob will also speak briefly about the pieces prior to performing them in order to set the audience’s table with courses of cultural context and palates of progression and procurement. We hope you enjoy!
