Lamnth, the new violin and cimbalom duo founded by Lilit Hartunian and Nicholas Tolle, performs at the MFA as part of its first full season of concerts. Hear the group play solo and duo works by Kenji Bunch, Reena Esmail, Erin Graham, Anthony Green, and György Kurtág.
Hartunian and Tolle, long-established members of Boston’s new music community, are frequent performers with the Boston Modern Orchestra Project, A Far Cry, Emmanuel Music, and Sound Icon, among other groups. They also frequently perform together with the Ludovico Ensemble, which Tolle founded. Selected for a 2023 Avaloch Farm Music Institute residency, Hartunian and Tolle rehearsed and workshopped their first commissioned work, Mischa Salkind-Pearl’s “Lines and Traces of Desire,” for a recording to be released in 2024.
