Since their formation in 2007, London based cello octet Cellophony have established themselves as the UK’s leading cello ensemble, carving a reputation as accomplished exponents of both the standard cello ensemble repertoire and a diverse array of specially commissioned arrangements and adaptations. This unique repertoire base and its exhilarating delivery on stage have won the group a following across the globe, with acclaimed performances on the festival scene across Europe and as far afield as South Korea.
Cellophony have received universal critical acclaim for performances at some of the UK’s most prestigious venues, including the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room, The Sage Gateshead, and Wigmore Hall. Their collaborations to date have included actor Simon Callow, sopranos Sarah Fox and Susana Gaspar, tenor Ben Johnson, and violinists Roberto Gonzalez and Sasha Sitkovetsky.
Cellophony are thrilled to present their latest recording: Richard Birchall’s The Wind in the Willows and Alice in Wonderland, narrated by Simon Callow. Two classic tales illustrated with music, brought together on this brand new family-friendly disc. Now available from Colchester Classics.
