The sound of Ceskie's string arranging alter ego:


The story behind the 'Hummingbird' sound

The Germans are almost onto Hummingbird, a 1940s violinist, composer and spy, undercover in France - when she suddenly loses connection to her London base.

She decides to use what she's really known for - her music  - to conceal and transmit critical information. 

Yet, her broken transmission is lost in the airwaves for 80 years... until now.

connected to the 2020's, Eva Hummingbird's signal links us with her unique string sound-world:
'The Hummingbird sound'.


"This is the real deal... string music that touches your soul"

Paul 'Papabear' Johnson -
Music director, producer, arranger, bassist, drummer (Lil Wayne, Kehlani, Taeyang, Taylor Swift, BAERD)

"One of the most accomplished string arrangers of our generation"

Connie Shih -
Critically acclaimed concert pianist and collaborator of Steven Isserlis, Maxim Vengerov, Tabea Zimmerman, Joshua Bell, Isabelle Faust, Manuel Fischer-Dieskau.
