Notes and Editorial Reviews
The 12 Cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic have enjoyed the adoration of a global fan club ever since their debut in Tokyo, and not Berlin, decades ago. The 8cd, 1978–2010 albums, brought together in this format for the first time, document all the facets of the instrument’s technical range in breathtaking and sensuous cello works from Bach to the Beatles, from film hits to chansons and jazz, and from South American music to the avant-garde style of the likes of Iannis Xenakis, who wrote original compositions that are tailor-made for the ensemble’s virtuoso fingers.
