CelloVersum - a music film produced by Styriarte

Six cellos can play a whole universe of music, as Matthias Bartolo­mey and his ensemble CelloVersum proves with boundless expeditions between Gesualdo, Bizet and Bernstein.

Matthias Bartolomey belongs to a Viennese dynasty of cellists and is likewise renowned for his unconventional crossover projects with the Duo BartolomeyBittmann. He loves the incalculable side of versatility of strings: groovy or dreamy, sensuous or sensational. At the Mozarteum University in Salzburg he has founded his cello sextet, “CelloVersum” – a universe of cello sound.
