FOLLOWING last year’s success with Caleidocello Peter Hudler returns with a solo cello music show – more fiery than last season but also more poetic.

A hot mix of styles, genres and characters, from the simplest folk tune to the most sophisticated jazz gem, from Baroque to Rock: Cello On Fire.

Cello On Fire is a solo music show with a carefully selected programme that connects seemingly disparate styles and genres and builds bridges between these different musical worlds.

Highlights of the programme are virtuoso cross over pieces by Giovanni Sollima, arrangements of Helter Skelter by Luna Pearl Woolfe and Little Wing by Mark Summer,  a haunting movement by Latvian contemporary composer Pieter Vasks that includes singing and a brand new piece by the famous Swedish Jazz Cellist Svante.

Peter Hudler is a highly trained musician, graduate of Mozarteum Salzburg, where he completed his master of music in 2008 and his postgraduate studies in 2009.

Originally from Vienna, Peter has primarily dedicated himself to chamber music and has been performing as a cellist and solo-cellist in chamber ensembles across Northern Europe, in Norway, Ireland and, most recently, Denmark.

His orchestral experience is similarly eclectic and includes for instance performing with the Camerata Salzburg, Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg, Tonkünstler Niederösterreich, Le Concert Olympique and at the Vienna State Opera.
