Notes & Reviews:

The Eight Cellists of the Vienna Philharmonic were founded in 1980. Christoph Stradner writes: "Eight cellos on stage — that is a very special event! The choice of instruments makes it possible to explore the most diverse sound spaces. Scoring with eight of the same instruments brings new, exciting cross connections to the listener's attention. Furthermore, the solo interpretation of each individual part creates a multifaceted, very personal, chamber-music-like intimacy. The "Cinemascope" arrangement of the players lends a further dimension. You will need both your ears."
