Based: Cape Town
This Electric Cello Trio combines the talents of Dorette Roos (Cape Town Philharmonic), Carol Thorns (Electric Cello Pioneer and SAMA Nominee) and Anjulie Nock (Cellist and Composer).
These three cellists share an exciting vision for the Cello, to revisit and re-position an instrument that is often overlooked. The result is an act that leads the way in the electric string genre.
Rosanthorn have set out a compositional and technical journey to explore all that the Cello has to offer across multiple genres and timbres, with the help of South Africa’s top composers and producers.
Their repertoire includes recordings and re-interpretations of works as varied as Vivaldi’s Double Concerto in G Minor, Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, and Imogen Heap’s Hide and Seek. Anjulie Nock has composed new works such as Night Journey (with a stirring Game of Thrones feel) and an original Tango (think Scent of A Woman for Cello). The Parting, by Helmut Meijer, is a reflective, stripped-down, soulful composition which inspired their first music video.
