Edward Bettella has released 3 brand new music videos which capture his live performances with cellist Jonathan Stabler.
Adhan is a haunting section from the first movement of Cello Sonata No.1, a brand new sonata for cello and piano composed by Edward Bettella. Cello Sonata No.1 was premiered in Bath in 2017 and was recorded for a brand new EP available to buy now at Bandcamp.
Sunset Flood is a movement from a suite for cello and piano entitled Sunset Fan/Sunset Flood, composed by Edward Bettella.
They Won’t Go When I Go is an arrangement of a classic song by Stevie Wonder and Yvonne Lowrene Wright. Originally released on the 1974 album Fulfillingness’ First Finale, this masterpiece is structured around a ground bass, the same compositional technique used 300 years earlier by Henry Purcell in ‘Dido’s Lament’. They both share the same subject matter of life after death and both pieces evoke a mournful, soulful tone.
Cello: Jonathan Stabler
