About this exposition

I have always been interested on looking for new repertoire for cello, in order to have a large range of pieces of many styles from where I can choose. I love Bach, Haydn and romantic composers. But 7 years ago, I listened to a piece from Lachemann for cello solo (Pression). I was very surprised about it, because I heard the cello sounding completely different, in a way that I had never heard before. That is how my interest in modern music started, and it has being growing until nowadays. I began to discover new repertoire after Romanticism (Britten, Ligeti, Kodaly, Glass, Gubaidulina, Lachemann, etc.) and I discovered very special and new feelings with this kind of music. In this way I started to research in contemporary cello repertoire, but I had never had the opportunity to play any of these pieces. I also realized that I didn't know so many musicians around me interested in these styles. In a way, I felt disappointed because nowadays, there are still a lot of musicians that don't have any interest on the music of our time, even from last century. I love romantic music, and I don't like all contemporary music, but I have discovered pieces that have really moved me. It is almost crazy that we don't know the music of our own time, because we are supposed to be the best generation to perform it! With this artistic research I saw very clearly the opportunity to start developing my career as a cellist also through contemporary music.
