Info provided by the Event Organiser
This cutting-edge cellist hops between musical genres, hemispheres and millennia with a repertoire that encompasses European Gregorian Chant, improvisations on Central Asian folk music, the Western classical tradition of four centuries - and more!
'Barley plays with the micro-instincts of a violinist, shading every phrase with the subtlest of nuances' (Sinfini Music).
