Without question, the cello is one of the most beloved of musical instruments. Why? Because its vibrations align exactly with those of the human voice. Le violoncelle en feu ! celebrates collegiality and brings attention to remarkable world-class cellists who call Montreal home. You will hear tangos by Piazzolla as well as his fabulous Cuatro Estaciones (four seasons) arranged for 8 cellos.
