ABOUT US

Four centuries ago, Claudio Monteverdi recounted human dramas, loves, expectations and dreams.

“Four centuries ago, Claudio Monteverdi was the first composer whose music recounted human dramas, loves, expectations and dreams. Over fifty years ago, Giacinto Scelsi composed a trilogy for solo cello: Les trois âges de l’homme. Youth-energy, drama-maturity, old age-memories: I imagine the life of Angioletta-Angel told through two composers four centuries apart.”

BACH: Cello Suites Nos. 3 & 4

“It’s a question of digging into the string until the phrase is born, along with its right breath. A sentence in perpetual becoming. It never stops being made and remade. I waited a long time to record them. And then one day, or rather one night, I began.”
