Show 1: Cello Moods & Broods (Solo)

Celloman presents his new acoustic album: Cello Moods & Broods. 

The album, released in December 2023, contains a collection of beautifully melodic original compositions for Cello duo, trio and quartet and is: 

“…a fine reminder of the emotional power of the cello”All About Jazz

This Entertaining and informative solo cello show discusses, through played examples, the changing role of the cello in history from bass instrument to melodic instrument. 

The cello is then introduced as a harmonic instrument, much like the guitar, through a new style of cello playing called Arpezzato, a combination of the words ‘Arpeggio’ and ‘Pizzicato’.

Playing examples taken from his album Arpezzato Cello, Ivan uses finger techniques imported from the world of Pop/Rock, Blues and Jazz including: ‘hammer-on’, ‘hammer-off’, ‘slide’, ‘pop’, ‘slap’, ‘strum’ and ‘Walking bass’.

Ivan then builds on those same compositions through the addition of bowed melody and harmony as Ivan performs pieces from Cello Moods & Broods

Duration: 90 minutes
