The first time I heard her was on the radio in the car. That was my introduction to her as well as the famed Elgar Cello Concerto. There was something about her lyricism and feeling that just jumped out at me like nothing else. Truly an extraordinary experience. BTW, the Stradivarius Yo Yo Ma plays once belonged to her.

 


WOW! Thank you so much for introducing me to Jacqueline du Pre. We've added the documentary to our Netflix queue. This is just beautiful. 

 

I wanted to share another of my favorites. It is a Debussy Sonate with Maurice Gendron Violoncello & Christian Ivaldi Klavier filmed in 1967 in Paris. It is mesmerizing. The balance of the piano and the cello is a perfect dance of contrast.

What an amazing, virtuostic performance. More importantly, what feeling! I don't think it possible to portray that piece any better. They've given me an appreciation of Debussy that I haven't had before.

 

 

Here's one of favorite contemporary cellists. Sol Gabetta. I really love Vivaldi's music, and she interprets it beautifully. What's interesting is that she plays some pieces written for cello naturally, but also violin concertos transcribed for cello, and she makes them her own. A joy to listen to.

 

Your wife will appreciate the baroque grip on the bow.

 

 

Crank up the volume on this one:

 

 

 

 

 

Going back to Elgar, I don't know of a better studio recording as done by Gabetta. Here she performs it live:

Hi Lan647. The initial review was about a great CD featuring 2 incredibly talented emerging stars on the contemporary classic scene. And the subsequent thread is about sharing music that we like and want others to hear. We'd love to hear some of your favorite performances.

 

And in the meantime, did anyone ever catch this Minnesota Public Radio  article about Les Six? Take a look at it by clicking Milhaud's quote below:

 

"The indifference of the public is what's depressing. Enthusiasm, or vehement protest, shows that your work really lives." - Darius Milhaud

 

Learn so much more about Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc, Louis Durey, Georges Auric, Germaine Tailleferre and Arthur Honegger.

Ah okay. And the CDs name is A Cello/Piano Due to Note? Cause I couldn't find it... would love to listen :) 

 

I have many but here are some of my favorite CDs/recordings: 

 

Chris Jones - Roadhouses & Automobiles. Tremendous music and reference quality recording. 
Diana Krall - Live in Paris

Jennifer Warnes - Famous blue raincoat

Leonard Cohen - Old ideas

Melody Gardot - My One And Only Thrill

Patricia Barber - Cafe Blue

Ottmar Liebert & Luna Negra - up close (a great binaural album that actually contains good music...)
Yello - Touch Yello

Enjoy =)

Hi - here is direct information on the CD:

It is the Baverstam/ Finehouse Duo. Sorry if I wasn't so clear on the original post.

post #23 of 35

Thank you, thank you, thank you for introducing me to such 'diamonds in the rough' so to speak as I would otherwise be oblivious to the existence of such musicians. I have to admit though that Steve Hunt I am familiar with..haha.

 

I am also interested in purchasing the Baverstam/Finehouse Debut CD or flac download equivalent. Do we contact via email on that website you linked Mike?

These are amazing pieces indeed. Wow. Please keep sharing. Cello is also my favorite instrument to listen to. My wife plays actually so I'm a lucky man indeed. This clip blows me away. It's a 5 sting cello. This is Ernst Reijseger performing one of his pieces from Werner Herzog's Cave Of Forgotten Dreams. The music is amazing. Other worldly really. But it is almost out of context in this video. You have to hear it while watching Werner's movie for it's full effect. One of the best movies we've ever seen really!

 

 

 

I have to also admit I turned my nose up at first few seconds of the track after which I began to fall in love with this as you put "other worldly" piece. Crazy!

 

It was probably the combination of the video accompanying the audio and the fact that it was youtube audio that I may have become snobbish for the first few seconds.

If you listen to Ernst Reijseger during Cave of Forgotten Dreams, it becomes one of the most surreal experiences that I can describe. First of all - the movie is amazing. The subject matter is mind altering. And the music ties it all together.
 

I'll find information on where the CD's can be ordered. Thanks all!

Haha seems we are more focused on new IEMs, headphones, amps etc etc etc...More the equipment rather than the music. It's good to have these threads though since those who are interested will hopefully add to the conversation.

Indeed. Here are my two suggestion

1-Memory of Geisha sound track

2-Seven years in Tibet sound track

Didn't realise there were replies. Sorry. Those are great tracks. Only recently have I begun to look for movie soundtracks - never really considered these before even for contemporary/pop music etc. Only recently have I heard the Lord of the Rings on and Batman Hans Zimmer and starting looking for more good ones..
