Cellophony is the vibrant, sonorous and exhilarating sound of an octet of young professional cellists. The group was established in 2007 in London, and is beginning to carve a reputation as accomplished exponents of not only the standard cello ensemble repertory, but also a diverse array of specially commissioned arrangements and adaptations. They were finalists in the 2010 Royal Over-Seas League chamber music competition, and the following year were Park Lane Group Young Artists, performing at London’s Purcell Room to universal critical acclaim and making their successful Wigmore Hall debut.
Future plans include a disc on Edition Classics, a concert at King’s Place featuring a new work by David Stapleton, and a two week tour of Korea in collaboration with the newly reformed London Cello Sound and director Geoffrey Simon. See a promotional video here.
