Heralded by The New York Times as a "composer of uncommon gifts and unusual methods," English composer Anna Clyne has masterfully crafted a new musical language, drawing inspiration from the words of 13th-century Persian poet Rumi. Her composition, a captivating dance for cello and orchestra, transports listeners to ethereal realms through its enchanting melodies. This extraordinary concerto, performed by Israeli-American cellist Inbal Segev, has garnered immense praise, with its opening movement amassing over 3 million plays on Spotify and earning a place among NPR Music's "Favorite Songs of 2020."

Cellist Inbal Segev is renowned for her “warm, pure, and beautiful tone.”  —Strings Magazine
