Keltic, jazz and classical with a solo instrument
On Cello. | Tones&Tunes is my new ambitious solo project, developed between 2020 and 2021.
In the past year 2020, I was then able to look retrospectively at what fascinated me as a person and cellist. It all resulted in my first solo Album featuring 10 new original tracks for acoustic cello solo.
The cello as an instrument has the main and only role in the creation and origin of this music program. The versatility of the cello makes it possible to display a wide spectrum of styles and sounds, not common in the classical tradition.
My roots and musical background are deeply reflected in this work. You can hear the Keltic sounds of my homeland Galicia (Spain), Irish jigs and reels, and classical and jazz influences.
On. Cello | Tones&Tunes was recorded in February 2021. The album release will take place in April 2021 and the release tour in NL is has received the support of Fonds Podium Kunst. The music will be soon available on streaming platforms.
The transcriptions of these compositions were carefully made to allow other curious cellists to experiment with them and have fun. My dream is to contribute to broadening the cello repertoire, and, why not, maybe some of these pieces end up being in the music stand of any other cellist out there too!
