Notes and Editorial Reviews

Celebrating Bartok's fascination with the folk music of Hungary, Romania, and Turkey, trailblazing cellist Matt Haimovitz delves into his own Romanian/Middle Eastern ancestry to create a sonic tapestry that bridges genres, geographic distances, and cultures. Collaborating with musical heavyweights including legendary guitarist John McLaughlin and cutting-edge turntablist DJ Olive and up-and-coming talents such as Montreal's classical Persian ensemble, Constantinople, and Haimovitz's newly founded cello ensemble, UCCELLO, Haimovitz displays his virtuosity and versatility as soloist, improviser, ensemble leader and collaborator. "But the glorious cap to the evening was Led Zeppelin's 'Kashmir.' The cellos 'singing' the soaring vocal Read more lines and burning through the guitar solos (it's only fair since Jimmy Page often took a violin bow to his guitar) of the Middle Eastern melody. Underneath, the young cellists slap the bodies of their instruments and clack bows against strings below the bridge to lay down the driving rhythms. As one Bachophile said, 'Led Zeppelin never sounded so good.'" Mark Whittington , San Jose, The Mercury News Read less
