Mellow Cello by candle light
I can stream live from a beautiful setting and provide an exceptional musical experience for any special occasion being celebrated on a virtual platform. Combining classical with contemporary through utilising sampling and looping technology, an exciting and innovative program of new music for the cello has evolved . As a virtuoso solo concert cellist I specialise in performing the "Unaccompanied suites for solo cello" by JS Bach. As a composer in performance I incorporate looping pedals to multi track the cello creating harmonies and rhythms performing music from my album releases. Review of album "Compositions & Meditations live in Chartres Cathedral" ‘Emily has developed an original program of new music by operating looping pedals with her feet to record harmonies and create multi-tracked cello compositions live). The result is a wonderfully mellow, atmospheric resonance……The extraordinary spiritual presence of Chartres is exquisitely captured here through Emily's cello.’ Review by Richard Giles JUNE – JULY 2018 NEXUS and in 2019 a reviewer wrote ‘Emily Burridge lifts the subtle art of cello to new dimensions with her inspirational, moody, soulful and joyous musicianship. This is cello to lift the spirit, harmonise with the emotions and take you on a journey’
