Michel van der Aa's new multi-media cello concerto, written for soloist Sol Gabetta, combines live performance and film and is now availabe as a DVD from Disquiet Media. The work was commissioned by the European Concert Halls Organisation, toured in March 2011 and won the prestigious 2013 Grawemeyer Award.

In this highly original 30-minute work the traditional interaction of soloist and ensemble is reflected by a mysterious, mirror reality seen on film.

"This hauntingly beautiful work is among van der Aa’s finest"
The Guardian

"...a richly intriguing affair"
The  Observer

"...a very contemporary form of intelligent but nevertheless accessible music theatre"
Het Parool
