Programme Notes

CELLO OCTET was commissioned by Conjuncto Iberico. As a one-time professional cellist who has written several works for solo cello I felt great joy in composing such an explosion of cello-ness - an exuberance and a love of the various singing, plucking and percussive virtues of this most glorious of instruments. Writing 'from the inside' gives a composer an almost physical excitement, not unlike an athlete's, in inwardly living the sounds which the octet will make manifest, and a sweet longing to hear the performance of them... © Jonathan Harvey
