Through the generous sponsorship from First Bank & Trust, CTAC Live will bring Rastrelli Cello Quartet to Duncan on Thursday, October 21st @ 7:30 pm. This first concert of the 2021-2022 CTAC Live Concert Series will be held at the Simmons Center Theater.
Coming all the way from Germany, the four gentlemen of the Rastrelli Cello Quartet began working together in 2002 and have devoted themselves ever since to exploring and experiencing the cello’s world of sound. The are committed to tradition, but completely uncoupled from the conventional approach, which only serves as a solid foundation.
The four Rastrelli cellist only perform music that they themselves love – that‘s a matter of absolute conviction when it comes to putting together their programs. The quartet usually treats its audience with a mixture of arrangements of chamber music works, orchestral classics, and standards of cello literature, as well as popular music, jazz, klezmer or tango.
The art of transformation becomes an authentic adventure in sound for the listener. There are always four cellos and yet you think you are hearing an old piano playing ragtime, a saxophone of the Glenn Miller Orchestra, or Pazzolla’s bandoneon.
The Rastrelli Cello Quartet has recorded eight CDs to date, which present very diverse styles of music and give an extensive survey of the repertoire of the ensemble. The CD “Cello in Classic” was nominated for the Record 2008” in Russia and won the silver award, only behind Luciano Pavarotti’s “Pavarotti Forever”.
We hope that you will join us on October 21st for an amazing night of beautiful music. For more information about tickets, please call 580-252-4160 or visit www.chisholmtrailarts.com.
