The drama of solo cello is exploited here in a recital of music ranging from pieces originally for viol to newly created works by this cellist/ composer. At the heart of the recital is Ligeti’s beguiling and hypnotic solo sonata.
A virtuoso, a composer, a writer, Zoë Martlew brings her virtuosity together with her sensitive interpretation to explore the acoustics of St Peter’s with intriguing solo repertoire.
