Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky's intricate fantasy on a 12th-century French motet, Pérotin's "Viderunt Omnes", opens a remarkable programme of contemporary music for cellos and percussion.

Formed in Basle in 2002, Celli Monighetti demonstrate an extraordinary range of techniques and timbres that run from viol-like purity to synthetic intensity. We also get Franghiz Ali-Zadeh's blend of Eastern and Western conventions, "Shyshtar Metamorphoses".
