Cello Multitracks

by Gabriel Prokofiev

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A suite of contrasting movements for nine layered cello parts, composed by Gabriel Prokofiev and performed by the cellist Peter Gregson.

    The release brings together the original suite and nine remixes by producers including Tim Exile [Warp], DJ Spooky, and Prokofiev himself.

    The piece was given its world premiere in 2011 at LSO St Lukes, London, with Peter playing one part live and the remaining eight covered by a virtual ensemble of eight loudspeakers.

    "Absorbing...An excellent listen" I Care if You Listen

    "A powerful introduction" to the music of Gabriel Prokofiev" The Times

    "Peter Gregson takes the sheer virtuosity of all nine parts effortlessly in his stride"
    Gramophone

    ★★★★ The Independent:

    "Cello Multitracks is Gabriel Prokofiev's four-part suite for nine cellos, here performed by the gifted cellist Peter Gregson, whose familiarity with laptop multi-track technology undoubtedly aids its realisation.

    As Prokofiev points out, classical music has always worked with contemporary dance forms, and accordingly Cello Multitracks employs rhythms and strategies culled from grime and rave: the brittle, edgy groove of "Jerk Driver", the elegant, dipping lines of "Float Dance", and the spindly, daddy-longlegs style of the syncopated pizzicato in "Tuff Strum". The four parts are then subjected to nine further remixes that emphasise both the stuttering digital character of the work, and its roots in Steve Reich's de-synchronisation exercises. "
