About the album

Released on Edition Classics, the new classical arm of celebrated British label Edition Records, Cellophony’s debut album Vibrez presents elegant re-workings of some key works from the romantic classical repertoire. The members of Cellophony are all masters of the cello, fusing eight cellos into one powerful sound, the ensemble at the same time preserves the intimacy of a solo instrument. From the opening of Richard Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde Prelude, through selections from Schuberts’s Schwanengeang to Samuel Barber’s timeless Adagio, Richard Birchall’s arrangements are both respectful and yet innovative and provide an integral part of the ensemble’s achingly rich and emotive sound.

Performing together over 6 years, Richard Birchall, Matthijs Broersma, Pau Codina, ReinoudFord, Ashok Klouda, Bartholomew LaFollete, John Myerscough and Ella Rundle pull together their varied international backgrounds and experiences to create the unique sonorities of Cellophony, a sound world that is inspiring a diverse range of composers to extend the repertoire for cello octets. Their frequent performances are making an impact on the classical concert scene and today they have a growing fan base.

‘…something comes along and blows you away. The eight-cello group Cellophony which launched the series was one. They looked terrific lined up there on stage, and what a fabulous rich and fruity noise they made. But I don’t think I was the only one left wanting to hear more cellophonous sounds. Let’s hope they return soon’. Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph
