The first hint that pianist Elizabeth Newkirk and violinist Kathryn Satoh share an interest in bucking convention is the Chicago-based twosome’s memorable, down-to-earth name, Bow & Hammer.
The best classical group in Chicago.
The duo is fantastic, making classical small ensemble playing exciting not only via programming but presentation.
This Classical Music concert with its inspired cocktail is a “Ravelation!”
It is Chamber Music with a difference. That might be the best way to describe the Élevé series devised by Bow & Hammer.
This is truly important work. You create a space where one feels welcome to completely immerse themselves in the music and confront their innermost feelings. I enjoyed the conversations between the pieces.
Fantastic performance of terrific, unfamiliar repertoire. Thank you!
I was mesmerized and had all the feels!
Unique and fun music experience unlike any other in Chicago. Bow & Hammer plays in a way that will move you and make you a fan!
This was so so beautiful. I want to listen to Pärt all day! You guys rock!
