The fourth and latest release on Disquiet is Michel van der Aa’s concerto for cello, string ensemble and film, Up-Close. It is performed on the recording by its dedicatees, the Argentinean cellist Sol Gabetta and the Amsterdam Sinfonietta, who have already played the piece to great acclaim around Europe. The role of the elderly lady in the filmed segments is played by Vakil Eelman.
During its premiere tour in March this year, critics in six countries described it as ‘brilliant, sensuous and virtuosic’, ‘riveting’, and ‘hautingly beautiful’.
‘Up-Close’ has been released on DVD and HD movie download, and is available to order from your local record shop, or from our web-store.
