#3323: Cello and Voice

Email a Friend

Listen to music for cello and voice on this edition of New Sounds.   We’ll hear a few selections from "The Escape Artist," a new opera by composer, vocalist & cellist Robert Een.  He worked with Meredith Monk for fifteen years, culminating the creation of their hour-long music-theater duet, "Facing North," and his writing, including this opera, employs extended techniques for both voice and cello. 


Then, from a brand-new recording by the Louth Contemporary Music Society, there’s music for cello and voice by Uzbek composer Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky, whose music is “like a quiet lake teeming with life below the surface” (Chicago Tribune.)  There's also some music from the Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy featuring processed voice, cello, guitar, in the service of a play, "Misterman."
