Taking the wheel for Picker’s “Old & Lost Rivers,” Vanhauwaert displayed his precise control amid the ebb and flow of wandering melodic lines, which ended with a deliberate whisper. Joining forces, Vanhauwaert and Holt treated the audience to a performance of Satie’s provocative “Parade,” an absurdist ballet originally created with Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau. In slapstick comedy argot, Satie (along with Holt and Vanhauwaert) took the powder and left the listeners holding the bag. Fortunately, the audience was amused. At intermission audience members couldn’t stop talking about the Parade.
