A momentous series of 81 commissions for solo cello

Sandro Botticelli’s Primavera (c.1480) and Charline von Heyl’s Primavera 2020 are the inspiration for THE PRIMAVERA PROJECT — celebrating a rich tapestry of distinct and diverse compositional voices with recordings, videos, live and virtual events, and ultimately a multimedia theatrical production.

PRIMAVERA IV the heart

PRIMAVERA IV the heart is the newest album of THE PRIMAVERA PROJECT. Released November 24, 2023, this digital album presents 13 new commissions for groundbreaking, multi-GRAMMY nominated cellist Matt Haimovitz. Passing the halfway point of the commissioning cycle, PRIMAVERA IV the heart presents an eclectic mix of composers who gravitate to various themes in the paintings.

THE PRIMAVERA PROJECT was featured in the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia with the special playlist PRIMAVERA A VENEZIA in collaboration with Charline von Heyl’s world premiere exhibition of Primavera 2020.
