NEW TO YOUTUBE | VC Younger Artist Sophia Bacelar Performs Arvo Pärt’s “Fratres”


VC Younger Artist cellist Sophia Bacelar performs Arvo Pärt’s “Fratres” with San Francisco Ballet principal dancer Sasha de Sola and conductor of the SF Ballet Ming Luke in her new brief movie, “Emergence.”

Shot on the Douglas Keane Michelin Star Restaurant “Cyrus” in Geyserville, California, final 12 months, the movie was born out of Bacelar’s need to discover a completely different medium via which to speak to her viewers through the pandemic.

“I acquired a grant from Juilliard to supply a brief movie about artists in isolation through the pandemic, which later resulted in Emergence,” Bacelar instructed The Violin Channel. “I knew I wished the movie to function myself and a solo dancer, and for the 2 figures to by no means meet onscreen- a reference to social distancing and the problem all of us artists confronted when not capable of collaborate with each other in particular person.”

“The selection of Arvo Pärt’s “Fratres” was primarily based on the minimal nature of the piece,” she added. “The work may be very minimalist, with the cello and piano nearly by no means taking part in collectively in unison. Once more, that is evocative of the sense of separation we had been all feeling throughout this time period.”

Soloist and choreographer of the SF Ballet Myles Thatcher created this authentic piece for the movie, and Sasha de Sola introduced it to life.

Since their collaboration on Emergence, Sophia has shot a number of brief dance/cello movies with Valentina Reneff-Olson that will likely be launched within the coming weeks.
