Behold, my cardboard exoskeleton of doom!
Drunk cello on an airplane!
No, it’s not drunk but on a recent trip, Steven Isserlis’ cello was strapped in with the plane’s full supply of extension seat belts. It was a knot system worthy of Houdini.
Less tricky, Steven comes to 92Y with his cello untied and in full sound this Sunday afternoon for a recital with pianist Kirill Gerstein.
Well I have an overwhelming desire to learn how to do cello now.
Have any of you faced obstacles/negativity for being PoC in classical music/whatever you do in music, whether you’re a professional, student, or amateur?
An excellent rose, related through ‘Maigold’ to the Scottish Roses. The dainty, blush-white, semi-double flowers are cupped at first, later opening to display a boss of golden stamens. The blooms are quite large, at around four inches across. They start to appear early in the season, continuing throughout the season. Light, musky fragrance. Generally a well-shaped, tough plant with vigorous bushy growth. 3.5 x 3 ft.
ablogofmanynames asked: What's the best website you've found for finding free cello sheet music? I'm broke and I'm just starting to play by ear and I was wondering if you had any website recommendations. I've used noteflight in the past , but it's hard to find songs by bands like Panic! At The Disco , All Time Low , Bring Me The Horizon , And Evanescence for the cello. It's mostly violin. Also if you had a website for viola music couple you please tell me? My sister plays viola and I think she'd like it. Thanks :)
This is an issue that’s plagued me for a while. Honestly, I don’t know any consistent ones. When the going gets tough, I download violin/piano arrangements in sheet music or MIDI and arrange them for cello either using free/bought score programs like MuseScore (you can easily use the change clef + transpose functions in the drop down menu if you don’t know how to mess around with these things, as long as you’re able to find a MIDI to open in the program, or if you’re willing to type) or just by reading treble clef.
