A Musical Journey: The Life and Soul of the CelloThroughout history composers have turned to the violoncello to express their most soulful, heartfelt melodies. What is it that makes this instrument so poignant? Gabriel Martins artfully explores a rich tradition of music by weaving his own original poetry through an evening of musical masterpieces from past to present. The program takes the audience on a journey through time with the instrument that is closest to the human voice.
