About cellomondo

„In my project cellomondo, I want to share my fascination with the diversity of musical individuality.
It´s exciting to move through a multitude of sound worlds, to learn the mother tongue of many composers and to tell their stories to the audience.”
(Katharina Gross – Austrian/Dutch cellist and performer, founder of cellomondo)

cellomondo asks (young) composers from different countries of the world to write for cello solo or for cello & electronics. The composers create works which reflect the richness of their individual background/origin as well as the expressive power of the instrument cello.
cellomondo boldly envisions to realize cello works by at least two composers from each country of the world.
„If I succeed, 388 (or more!) new pieces will have been realized... „

cellomondo edition/CD #1 Persistent Memory was named after the very first piece of the project by Korean composer Seung-Won Oh. Brazilian/French composer Aurélio Edler-Copes’ work Rebirth in Sound is name giver of the second cellomondo edition/CD.

cellomondo edition #3 - a world in transformation includes new works for the project by composers Erika Vega and Felipe Waller from Mexico, Micael Antunes and Gabriel Xavier from Brazil and Hugo Vasco Reis from Portugal.
