Cello Extension: Works For Cello Solo From The 21s
Format: COMPACT DISC
Greco, Fernando Caida
Within this album Fernando Caida Greco is presenting an excursus into the world of contemporary music dedicated to the solo cello, supported by a group of young composers who face the challenge of collecting a legacy originating back in the late seventeenth century, when the works of the main virtuosos dedicated to this instrument made their way into the European musical panorama for the first time (see for example Domenico Gabrielli, cornerstone of the great Bolognese school). Caida Greco plays a perfectly preserved nineteenth-century cello with a gut string setting that gives the instrument an expressiveness not achievable with modern steel strings.
