GERMANY/UK: Elisabeth Coudoux-Some Poems; Cello Solo(LEO RECORDS 2016)

On this debut CD, Elisabeth Coudoux demonstrates tremendous courage by going solo and staking her own territory. A mixture of written and improvised music, these 11 pieces tell her own storey in a distinctive style. Her amazing wideranging technique reveals a long classical training. Based in Koln, Elisabeth Coudoux is a member of The Octopus, an improvising cello quartet (CD LR 770), as well as some other groups which blur the lines between the written and improvised music.
