Beryllium is fascinated with the aspects of interactive performance. The core of our process is ensemble interplay. Creating a multi-dimensional concert experience, we transcend the ordinary.
Beryllium evolved from The Orion Music Ensemble. Performing weekly chamber music concerts on the balcony at The Met Museum, composer Joe Gianono heard the group. He became inspired to write a Piano Quartet for the ensemble. As we started recording Joe's Piano Quartet we found numerous unrecorded chamber music pieces that evolved into our first recording Beryllium Performs The Chamber Music of Joe Gianono.
