QUATTROCELLI The beauty of the cello sound enriched with a sublime sense of humor, is the way quattrocelli reaches the audience worldwide since 1997. Far away from mainstream, the four gentlemen combine different musical genres into the experience of a unique and sophisticated classical entertainment.
Their own point of view is the source of the fact, that the entire repertory of the quartet is especially arranged and composed for the ensemble. Lalo Schifrin, the composer of the track to "Mission Impossible", dedicated the piece "Crosscurrents" to quattrocelli, which was supported by the Siemens Foundation in 2008. During the international Rutesheim Cello Academy the opus was performed for the first time and broadcasted worldwide by Deutsche Welle DW.
At the beginning of the quattrocelli story a grant from the Sellheim Society helped getting things started with an important series of radio and TV performances. Invitations from all over the world followed. Among others, the group performed over 140 shows in the United States. As a frequent guest at festivals all over Europe, the United States and Asia the quartet reaches the most different audiences by the diversity and high class of their performances. The energetic passion and unexpected musical surprises are an explosive mixture, which amuses, surprises and takes the listener into a world never expected by looking at a classical music instrument. Multiplied by four.
Four gentlemen in the spotlight Lukas Dreyer, Matthias Trück, Tim Ströble and Hartwig Christ. Extending its concert activity, quattrocelli visited Asia more frequently since 2006 and celebrated an amazing success of a two-week concert tour to Japan and South Korea in July 2014. Besides shows in Germany, the upcoming international tours will lead the quartet to Lithuania, Romania, Poland and France.
Since 1997, quattrocelli recorded five CDs in cooperation with different radio stations in Germany. The stations Radio Bremen and NDR in Hannover have been the most important partners. The upcoming audio and video productions will be dedicated to special themes and ideas. "Scenes", the current program and CD focuses on film music.
