CELLO ON FIRE - CELLO SOLO from Baroque to Rock

***
'Beautifully wistful'  (The Scotsman)

'His wonderful playing blurred the boundaries between genres and instruments' (Three Weeks)

***

In seinem erfolgreichen Cross Over Programm zeigt Cellist Peter Hudler dass sein Instrument bei weitem nicht nur im klassischen Orchester zuhause ist. Die scheinbar disparatesten Genres verbinden sich zu einer kraftvoll-leidenschaftlichen aber auch poetischen musikalischen Reise, mit Musik von Barock bis Rock, Folk-Inspiriertem, Jazz, klassischer Moderne und improvisatorischen Elementen, launisch moderiert mit einem humorvollen Augenzwinkern. 

Einige der besten Jazzmusiker haben Stücke zu diesem Programm beigetragen, unter anderen John Zorn, Ernst Reijseger und Svante Henryson, dazu kommen barocke Perlen von Bach und dall'Abaco, höchst virtuose Cross Over-Stücke von Giovanni Sollima, sogar ein Flamenco und mehr. 

Peter Hudler ist mit diesem Programm unter anderem am Copenhagen Jazz Festival, seit mehreren Jahren regelmässig beim Edinburgh Festival Fringe und in der Sargfabrik Wien aufgetreten. Er gewann für seine Programmauswahl am Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019 den Three Weeks Editor's Choice Award. Für 2020 ist unter anderem eine UK Tournee in Planung.

Cello on Fire is a Solo Cello Music Show - not your standard classical recital but a very colorful mix of styles, ranging literally from Baroque to Rock.
As the Southside Advertiser put it: "Be prepared to put any pre-conceptions of what a cello can sound like to one side and be prepared to let Peter Hudler re-define this instrument for you." 

The programme consists of  works by contemporary musicians, one or the other more classical piece and a wide range of Jazz and Folk inspired music including spectacularly virtuoso  cross over music  that altogether makes for an entertaining and colorful night full of Cello surprises.
Some of the best Jazz musicians have contributed pieces to the show, amongst them John Zorn, Ernst Reijseger and Svante Henryson.  Added to that are some beautiful Baroque gems by Bach and dall'Abaco, Cross Over pieces by Giovanni Sollima, even a Flamenco and more. 

Peter has played this show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Copenhagen Jazz Festival and at Sargfabrik Vienna, amongst others. A UK tour is being planned for 2020. For his programming of the show  he received the Three Weeks Editor's Choice 2019.
