Mark Gresham | 22 JUL 2020

Number 9 in a series of audio and video presentations curated by EarRelevant’s publisher and principal writer Mark Gresham as part of his “Composer’s Notebook.” Beginning with this episode, we  depart from the music of our composer-writers to begin bringing you performances by notable musicians and events with strong musical connections to Atlanta. In this instance, we turn to two of Atlanta’s favorite musicians, siblings David and Julie, Coucheron for inspiration, seen and heard in the video below with cellist Efe Baltacigil in a 2016 performance at their Kon-Tiki Chamber music Festival in Oslo, Norway, about 140 kilometers from their hometown of Nesodden.
