FRANCESCO DILLON | CELLIST
Brahms al violoncello
Cello Transcriptions with pianist Emanuele Torquati (Brilliant )
"Dillon and Torquati read this Brahms with the intelligence and sensitivity that we already knew: being interpreters with a strong contemporary attitude allows them to better measure the balance, bringing out the most restless and partly visionary aspects of Brahmsian romanticism. ... Very beautiful."

He brought absolute involvement and reverence to the demanding instrumental techniques and strange sonic stances called for in Harvey’s scores. A surprising, weird whistling came out of his amplified instrument in Curve with Plateaux. Like Curve, Advaya had moments where Dillon tangentially emoted; some of these moments were mysteriously reminiscent of expression found in traditional folk music from the Middle East, perhaps.
