Eight outstanding cellists from North Rhine-Westphalia come together in this ensemble to bring the impressive sound of eight cellos to the stage. No other string instrument is as versatile and masters both high and low registers as well as vocal melodies, bass foundations and fast rhythms. With baroque concerti by Antonio Vivaldi, romantic works by Sergei Rachmaninoff and tango compositions by Astor Piazzolla, 8Celli present a programme that makes the most of this entire range of instruments and already brought the audience to standing ovations at their Cologne debut in 2021.
