RIP cellist Lynn Harrel

Recommended Posts

Extremely shocked and sad! :o:( He was supposed to perform this coming May in Santa Monica at the Broad Theater until the coronavirus cancelled the performance. I truly hope he did not pass because of the virus!

in other sad cello news, the longtime cellist of the Amadeus Quartett, Martin Lovett (the sole surviving member, up till today), died this morning, at age 93.

I only had the opportunity to see Mr. Harrell live once, during the 1980s. He played a big concerto with the symphony here, the Lalo, I believe. But what really sticks with me still is what he played for an encore: the Sarabande from the 5th cello suite. It was just haunting and sublime. 

I think I have the autographed program somewhere.... 

RIP, Maestro
