Music has a Beautiful power. And it always amazes me that a Note, a Chord, can create such amazing feeling in your Heart and mind. Sir Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto is one such piece of Music that speaks to my Heart, and one note, honestly one sustained note that comes in and gets louder is such a highlight for me. It’s all about the simple things in life :) #SirEdwardElgar#EdwardElgar#Elgar#Music#CelloConcerto#Classical#ClassicalMusic
So I just learned of the existence of the best radio station ever. Not sure how I went so long without it! Aside from this gem, I heard a cello concerto by Dvorak last night that I didn't know about before. Still so much to learn and hear. #music#piano#violin#radio#classical#dvorak#celloconcerto
“The first time I played Dvorak concerto with an orchestra was in the final round of the Janigro competition in Zagreb, 16 years ago, followed immediately with a tour with it in the middle of Italy. Since then I played it maybe 30 or 40 times, I have 7 different editions of the score but every time I try to start from ground zero, to look at the piece as the first time (like a wonderful love story should be) .” - Umberto Clerici⠀
