Cello, so often associated with the human voice, finds there the most harmonious setting surrounded by voices which run trough the musical expanse. This project is constructed first by asking the greatest current composers of pieces for chord and cello solos. We interpret some existing work of the 20th century to find an echo of modernity, we draw our inspiration from ancient music, from Allegri, Lassus, Purcell or Dowland.
It seems that the beauty of this associated tone has raised this program to a spiritual dimension. Beyond epoch and tradition, the choice of work leads to a higher level and meditation.
