Notes and Editorial Reviews

Comprising six of the finest cellists in South Africa, I Grandi Violoncellisti have made this kind of repertoire their own. Working for many years with some of South Africa's finest composers they present an eclectic mix of new commissions and repertoire works, centring on a common theme of dance. Led by British-born Peter Martens, the group explores the sumptuous sound of 6 cellos to its full potential.
