Our next Aperitivo will feature Erik Friedlander – today’s leading cello innovator and a stalwart of the creative music scene – in a rare solo performance showcasing some of the highlights from his diverse range of projects.

To listen to a preview playlist of the concert please click here.

Erik Friedlander started studying music at an early age, beginning at 5 with guitar, and then at 8, cello lessons. He grew up in a house filled with music, as his father, an avid music lover, made countless mixtapes which played daily in their home. Erik spent his twenties honing his skills as a player and improviser and quickly became a sought-after studio musician, performing on the Downtown music scene with artists as diverse as The Mountain Goats, John Zorn, Dave Douglasand Courtney Love. Erik’s desire to actively participate in the swirl of music styles he was surrounded by led him to find new ways to play the cello and drives his solo work which is varied and unusual.

Friedlander’s recent projects include Rings, featuring Black Phebe, Erik’s three-trios-in-one band: “Together they travel musically around the world in different times and places. From dusty streets and whirling dances to delicate and ethereal tone poems. The music is widescreen.” – Jakob Baekgaard (AllAboutJazz.com)
