The young cellist Christoph Heesch is releasing a revolutionary album on GENUIN. The prizewinner of the Fanny Mendelssohn Sponsorship Award plays four cello concertos from 1924-25, each of which is a sensation in itself. The composers Paul Hindemith, Jacques Ibert, Bohuslav Martinu and Ernst Toch wrote exciting music for an exciting time: they broke all conventions and put the solo instrument and orchestra in a new relationship to each other. Christoph Heesch throws himself into these virtuoso, melodious, cumbersome works with verve. In short: absolutely worthwhile works that you do not want to listen to anywhere else than from this release. Christoph Heesch is one of the most exciting artists of his generation. Born in Berlin in 1995, he is currently studying at the Berlin University of the Arts with Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt. He was previously a student of Jens Peter Maintz. A solo cellist of the Esperanza Ensemble and the Eroica Berlin ensemble, he combines insights of historically-informed performance practice with modern instruments.
