Show Notes

When I organised my interview with cellist Matt Haimovitz, Primavera II the rabbits had just been released. Now there's also Primavera III the vessels to add to the original Primavera I  the wind.

This is all just part of the massive Primavera Project, which will eventually include 81 world premieres for solo cello. Our conversation covers the inspiration behind the compositions, the recording process and what's coming next for the project. There are some remarkable videos to watch, too.

Thanks to Matt for a fascinating conversation and for allowing me to use clips from Primavera II the rabbits alongside our conversation.

Don't forget the Quincy Jones quote that sums up why I do this: "Imagine what a harmonious world it would be if every single person, both young and old, shared a little of what he is good at doing."
