Bookmark and Share

Israeli-American cellist Inbal Segev, known for her "warm, pure and beautiful tone" (Strings Magazine), will open The Music of Anna Clyne, a concert marking the first night of Roulette's (509 Atlantic Ave) NYC, third annual String Theory Festival. Segev will perform Grammy-nominated composer Anna Clyne's Rest These Hands for solo cello. The concert also includes performances of Clyne's music by The String Orchestra of Brooklyn and Mivos Quartet.

Anna Clyne's Rest These Hands is a movement from The Violin, a suite of seven pieces for multi-tracked violins, that has been arranged for solo cello. Clyne wrote it around the anniversary of her mother's death, composing one piece an evening and finishing on the day of the anniversary. Of her relationship with Clyne, Segev says, "When I first heard Anna's music performed by the Baltimore symphony, it sounded very organic to me, gentle and warm yet with a purpose and inner strength. I later met Anna and she was very much like her music. Rest these hands has these same qualities too and I find it is a wonderful piece for the cello."
