The name Rosanthorn is a combination of the cellists names – Dorette Roos forms the ‘Rose’, Anjulie Nock gets to be the ‘An’ and Thorn is Carol Thorns.
Rosanthorn Electric Cello Trio consits of the talented Dorette Roos (Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra), Carol Thorns (Electric Cello Pioneer and SAMA Nominee) and Anjulie Nock (Cellist and Composer). This all-female electric cello trio released their first self- titled 6 track EP in April 2017. It is available on Itunes and at www.rosanthorn.bandcamp.com
Rosanthorn have set out a compositional and technical journey to explore all that the Cello has to offer across multiple genres and timbres. They did this with the help of South Africa’s top composers and producers. Their repertoire includes recordings and re-interpretations of works as varied as Vivaldi’s Double Concerto in G Minor, Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, and Imogen Heap’s Hide and Seek.
