The Cello Takes Over The Beatles and not just any Beatles number, but perhaps their most revolutionary work. Cello Octet Amsterdam will be rising to the challenge and performing an arrangement of one of the most influential albums of all time.
In 1967, it broke just about every ‘law’ of rock & roll imaginable – no singles, but a concept album on which The Beatles recorded their musical experiments, knowing full well that they’d never have to perform them live on stage.
We can’t wait to hear Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and A Day in the Life played by eight cellos!
The arrangements were an enormous challenge, both technically and artistically, which ultimately only a highly experienced artist and creative spirit with a vast knowledge of pop and rock could have hoped to pull off.
There was only one person we could ask to take this on – the Dutch-American composer, guitarist and pop singer David Dramm.
