TwoSense was established by cellist Ashley Bathgate and pianist Lisa Moore following their first rehearsals for a recording session in 2009. It is intended for the purpose of commissioning works and presenting concerts that blend a shared passion for both mainstream chamber music classics and new, genre-embracing works.
Described as the “new music equivalent of a special ops team” (New York Magazine) these “eloquent new-music interpreters” (New York Times) have taken the chamber music scene by storm. After a successful NYC debut at (le) Poisson Rouge, Allan Kozinn of The New York Times wrote: “however TwoSense proceeds – whether purely as a duo or an open-ended chamber project- it’s adventures should be worth following.” They have appeared at Firehouse12 and Yale University in New Haven, The Detroit Institute of Art, Southern Exposure New Music Series, Bargemusic, the Rubin Museum, (le) Poisson Rouge, Roulette and the Bang on a Can 25th Anniversary Marathon at the World Financial Center in NYC. Together they have commissioned 12 new works for cello and piano from some of today’s finest composers.
