“In my project cellomondo, I want to share my fascination with the diversity of musical individuality.”

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… „

Katharina played a cellomondo-marathon at the Gaudeamus Muziekweek: 5 hours of cellomondo-music with the first compositions for this project.

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. The CDs are available from concertello records.

In 2022, the third edition of the project will be realised, with composers from Brazil, Portugal and Mexico.
