eeeeee music nerdery excitement
the melbourne symphony orchestra has this shared concert program with the youth orchestra i play in and i’m playing in it this year
which means apparently my audition last year was like… alright
now all i have to do is convince one of the mso cellists to be my teacher…
Pierre Monteux, London Symphony Orchestra, 1962
Ma mère l’oye (1912), “XI: Sixième tableau - Le jardin féerique”
i legit started tearing up when we rehearsed this in orchestra
i have one of those 1/32 size violins from when i was 3
German Dances, K. 602: No. 2 in F major, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; Ensemble Wien
I have an unhealthy obsession with Rachmaninov.
i think stringed instruments inspire so much emotional response because the sound they make is real similar to the human voice. its like yr being sung to in a language you can’t understand, like when you were in the womb and heard people talking
I’m really enjoying this piece that i’m playing.
Sicilienne - von Paradis
Jacqueline du Pré
Sicilienne, Op 78 - Gabriel Fauré
Cello: Steven Isserlis
Piano: Pascal Devoynon
A beautiful piece of cello music, now staple repertoire for cello and flute!
