The Global Cello Project presents its latest video of the second movement from Beethoven’s Symphony no.7. Formerly known as the Covid Cello Project, the initiative began during the pandemic as a way for cellists of all abilities to connect and record with each other from around the world. Through word of mouth and social media, the collective has grown from 17 cellists to a community of over 500.
The work was arranged for ten cello parts by Global Cello Project CEO Tony Rogers, Robert Clayton and Rowan Bendall. This is the 17th video produced by the project, with previous videos including a range of works by Corelli, Schubert, Saint-Saëns, to modern works by Hans Zimmer, Led Zeppelin, A-ha and the Electric Light Orchestra.
Cellists of all abilities from any country in the world are invited to participate in future video projects. The next recording will be Danse Macabre by Saint-Saëns. Cellists interested in participating can find out more here. The Global Cello Project welcomes donations, 100% of which will sponsor cellists who would not otherwise be able to take part in the recording projects.
