London based cello octet, Cellophony, have carved a reputation as accomplished exponents of not only the standard cello ensemble repertoire, but also a diverse array of specially commissioned arrangements and adaptations.

Cellophony’s debut album ‘Vibrez’ was released on Edition Classics on 10th February 2014. It presents elegant re-workings of some key works from the romantic classical repertoire. From the opening of Richard Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde Prelude, through selections from Schuberts’s Schwanengeang to Samuel Barber’s timeless Adagio, Richard Birchall’s arrangements are both respectful and yet innovative and provide an integral part of the ensemble’s achingly rich and emotive sound.
