Cellist Mariel Roberts to Launch CATOGRAPHY Solo Album, 5/19Cellist Mariel Roberts to Launch CATOGRAPHY Solo Album, 5/19
by BWW News Desk - Apr 11, 2017

Cartography, the second solo album by intrepid cellist Mariel Roberts, comes out Friday, May 19 on New Focus Recordings, with a 10 pm release show that evening at National Sawdust. Cartography features first recordings of dauntingly virtuosic pieces written for Roberts by four New York-based composers: Cenk Ergün, Davi? Brynjar Franzson,George Lewis, and Eric Wubbels, who joins her on piano for his gretchen am spinnrade. Inspired by Roberts' technical wizardry and interpretive élan, her collaborators have created music that takes the cello into uncharted realms, requiring intense concentration, razor-sharp precision, and almost superhuman endurance. Yet in Roberts' hands, the works transcend their technical demands to emerge as deeply moving meditations on time – the cartography of subjective human experience.  (more...)
