New hits and classics meet on electric cello

Electric cello music at its best will be on display at Drama Factory on 6 September.

The Rosanthorn electric cello trio combines the talents of Dorette Roos (Cape Town Philharmonic), Carol Thorns (electric cello pioneer and SAMA Nominee) and Anjulie Nock (cellist and composer).

Rosanthorn has set out a compositional and technical journey to explore all that the cello has to offer across multiple genres and timbres, with the help of South Africa’s top composers and producers.

Their repertoire includes recordings and re-interpretations of works as varied as Vivaldi’s “Double Concerto in G Minor”, Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”, and Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek”. Anjulie Nock has composed new works, such as “Night Journey” (with a stirring Game of Thrones feel) and an original tango (think Scent of a Woman for cello).

“The Parting”, by Helmut Meijer is a reflective, stripped-down, soulful composition, which inspired their first music video.

The composer and producer says: “The sound of the three cellos together is exquisite. This project is musically satisfying and a pleasure to record – I predict that Rosanthorn is going to be the talk of the town.”

This all-female electric cello trio has been hard at work recording new arrangements, including a haunting African medley based on “Weeping” by Dan Heymann and Abdullah Ibrahim’s “Mannenberg”, “Dancing on My Own” by Callum Scott and “Secrets” by One Republic.

Rosanthorn has made its mark in a very short space of time by appearing regularly at the Silo District’s new Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, and was commissioned to perform at its launch events.

Its acoustic cello set in this magnificent space was a triumph and has positioned Rosanthorn as a sought-after new act in SA.
