“Total Chellout à la Mozart,” a new single by maniacal Latvian cello trio Melo-M, is available as a free download until March 10, the Rīga-based recording company Platforma Music has announced.
The track combines elements of W.A. Mozart’s “Turkish March” with American bluegrass and Russian folk music. The new composition is what Melo-M plans to perform later this month in the Terem Crossover Competition in St. Petersburg, Russia. The competition, which will feature some 70 professional ensembles from around the world, requires performance of some variation on a classical music theme.
Melo-M was founded in 2005. The ensemble consists of three classically trained musicians: Kārlis Auzāns, Valters Pūce and Antons Trocjuks.
The trio has released three albums. The eponymous Melo-M appeared in 2004, followed by Singalongs in 2007 and Around the World in 2009.
