The Yarilo Music Ensemble is comprised of the piano duo of Jane Hayes and Anna Levy and guests. Formed nearly a decade ago, its mandate is to lead Vancouver’s musical community towards new shores with the performing and commissioning of cutting- edge repertory for 2 pianos, often with the addition of other instruments. The ensemble concertizes regularly in Metro Vancouver and abroad. Over the past decade, the ensemble has collaborated with the CBC and has been a successful participant in the Canadian Music Centre’s New Music in New Places venture. In addition to performing established traditional (Bartok, Bernstein and Rachmaninoff) and Canadian 2-piano music (Michael C. Baker, Alexina Louie), the Yarilo Music Ensemble has commissioned works by Canadian composers (Jocelyn Morlock, Roussi Tarmakov, Colin MacDonald, and Michael Conway Baker).
