Jeffrey Krieger - Electric Cello

Press Review Excerpts

 


This was modern music at its best: completely liberated from strictures and norms, where even non-musical sounds can be used to express musical ideas, surreal and abstract at one level while touching the heart and transforming the soul at another, gently prompting us to ponder over those eternal mysteries of our existence.

 

RAVE MAGAZINE, INDIA    

_____________________________________________________________________

Krieger, a leader of the electronic cello concept, made the piece go with his virtuosic intensity, which he also brought to his own piece, "Videocello."

 

THE HARTFORD COURANT


...music for meditation, lyrical, elegiac in nature, ...fascinating contrast.

 

AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE


...most affecting.

 

FANFARE MAGAZINE


Throughout, Krieger loses little of the original instruments lyricism and grace as he coaxes a 21st-century voice from the e-cellos strings.

 

WIRED MAGAZINE


Jeffrey Kriegers electronic cello is appropriately unsettling and hypnotic.

 

OUT MAGAZINE


Sometimes it rolled like thunder, then it buzzed like a swarm of hornets, other times it chimed like the rim of a glass being rubbed by a wet finger. The playing was emotional, the sound very unusual.

 

THE HARTFORD ADVOCATE


Krieger...delivered an extremely varied program with musical understanding and finesse...tears with virtuosity through ever more rapidly alternating funk, jazz and rock flavored phrases over a similarly schizophrenic drum machine; it was both funny and musically exhilarating.

 

THE MIAMI HERALD


...revealed the heart and soul of the electronic cello.

 

THE CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER


...fluid, disciplined movements with sensitivity and finesse, translating his skill on the acoustic cello into a more modern musical realm. His skill with both forms of the instrument reflect the blend of technological ability and fluency in traditional styles which may characterize generations of musicians and composers to come.

 

TRINITY COLLEGE NEWS


A champion of the electric variant.
