'Cello Sonorities'

'Cello Sonorities'talk by Robin Michael

A journey through the repertoire for solo cello to demonstrate the astonishing variety in timbre and sonority that the cello provides. From the Bach solo suites and the ground breaking solo sonata of Kodaly through to the extended techniques used by Lachenmann, Xenakis and Berio, Robin will demonstrate the full range of textural possibilites that have fascinated composers when writing for this instrument.
