BIOGRAPHY

In her first solo cello programme Sophie Abraham combines elements from classical pieces with her own compositions. Musically she expands the sound space of the cello with her voice, her languages (Dutch, German, English), with loops, montages and overlays. The result is a highly interesting, sophisticated, extremely complex and very independent sound space in which the expressive possibilities of the cello are expanded. The musical openness of the cellist and her love of diversity are the basis for a program that is characterized by strictly composed pieces and a strong tendency towards spontaneous improvisation.
