Internationally acclaimed composer and virtuoso cellist from London Jo Quail new studio album “The Cartographer” on CD Digipack!
“The Cartographer” is a piece commissioned by the renown Roadburn Festival, who will host its premiere performance in April 2022 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, the Netherlands. The project, initially planned for 2020, explores the space where classical instrumentation and contemporary heavy music intersect: how classical music has a heaviness of its own, and how these elements can be brought into contemporary heavy genres.
