  1. Who cares about that though? They are bringing classical music to a much wider audience than you and me. The same thing happened when people started complaining about Andre Rieu and his shenanigans. As long as more people get education and access to the world of classical music, I’m fine with it.
  2. You placed a bid on this Cello, so you must have some faith.
  3. Thank you, it’s an interesting study.
  4. They already have a monetary higher value regardless of my opinion. I’m trying to find out if that objective value translates into better acoustics.
  5. Is anyone familiar with these tailpieces? Also, is there a good (acoustical) reason for their higher prices opposed to other materials?
  6. I had the privilege to perform Beethoven’s 9th Symphony under his baton in February 2019, together with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in Munich. There were two performances and we all knew that this would be the last time to see him conduct, as he already announced his retirement. Rest In Peace!
  7. Thank you, Philip. I play on an anonymous French Cello built around 1820. My bow is from a modern maker in Germany—Josef Gabriel. Regarding the Humoresque, you probably thought about Elfentanz or At the fountain, right?
  8. This year marks the 160th anniversary of the almost forgotten russian composer Anton Arensky. As a small tribute, I decided to record his Quatre Morceaux Op. 56. These pieces have been so far neglected and I hope that we will have them included in Cello recitals and recordings in the future. https://youtu.be/tV-U2h8Nb9I
  9. http://www.stevensoncases.co.uk/cello.htm You can find here the best, but also the most expensive cello cases and flight cases on the market.
  10. It’s a very good humidifier, I have been using it for years. If the bag doesn’t absorb water after the 3rd or 4th time, add boiling water and wait for 45 min. I keep the hygrometer in the Cello case and it has been very reliable.

    Does this violin look like an original by Alfredo Gianotti?
