• Show Bio for Erik Friedlander
"Cellist 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 an improviser and quickly became a sought after studio musician, performing on the Downtown music scene and with artists as diverse as The Mountain Goats, John Zorn, Dave Douglas and 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."-Erik Friedlander Website (http://www.erikfriedlander.com/about/)

descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Definitive performances of three dynamic new chamber pieces pushing the boundaries of virtuosity and intensity. Le Momo, for violin and piano is a work of extremes, a ritual about exorcism and possession inspired by the works of visionary 20th Century shaman Antonin Artaud. Untitled, dedicated to Joseph Cornell, the hermetic New York artist whose delirious box constructions mix innocent nostalgia with uncomfortable personal obsessions, is a tour de force for solo cello brilliantly performed by Erik Friedlander. The piano trio Amour Fou explores love-obsessive love, mad love, doomed love in a compendium of moods ranging from Bunuel to Bataille, Scriabin to Messiaen. A mysterious and romantic new direction from John Zorn."-Tzadik
