Performing music from the 17th Century to the present day

two cellos.JPG (21241 bytes)

“Two ‘Cellos” were formed some ten years ago and has enjoyed a growing success as an ensemble offering an exciting alternative to the more conventional choice of the String Quartet, Harp or Piano. Like all classically trained musicians, they worked initially in the conventional world of recitals and the concert hall, but made the decision, some years ago, to become more commercially orientated. This meant huge changes in both their repertoire and the way they worked. They have been fortunate in that many highly regarded colleagues have arranged popular music for “Two ‘Cellos” . Currently arranging for the duo is Alan Cohen who writes for the BBC, the National Jazz Orchestra and Deutsche Radio to name but a few of his clients.

At larger venues the Duo play through a very high amplification system, specifically chosed for its ability to discreetly enhance the sound of “Two ‘Cellos” without ever becoming overpowering. Thus they can offer high quality background music for every type of event, where their music creates an atmosphere in whch people can truly relax. Whether it is music for a Traditional Wedding Reception, or a Civil Ceremony and Reception. “Two ‘Cellos” are the people for your function.

“Two ‘Cellos” are also available for Corporate Events.

A demo of “Two’Cellos” is available on request on either CD, Mini Disc or Cassette.
