Our guest director and soloist for this programme, the internationally-renowned Italian cellist and composer Giovanni Sollima, is a performer quite unlike any other.
With a rock musician's energy and directness of communication, and a musicality that sits happily across many genres.
Put together around his personality, this programme, blends the traditional and the more modern, features two of his own works, the lyrical Violoncelles Vibrez! for two cello soloists and strings, and LB Files, a mini dramatisation of the life of Luigi Boccherini, a work that embraces jazz, world, contemporary and rock all in one.
