Cello music!

Please recommend!

 

♥ the Yo-Yo Ma: Solo album I picked up.  The Fountain official soundtrack was great, but the recording quality is sub-par.

 

Picking up these guys soon: https://portlandcelloproject.com/    

 

...more.

go to Linn Records and check out Bach Cello Suites by Richard Tunnicliffe.  If you can play high res files it is worth the money as it is probably the most impressive and stunning recording i own regardless of genre.

Bought the redbook version - it's good!  Thanks for the recommendation.

The Goat Rodeo Sessions are outstanding. It's Yo-Yo Ma with another cellist, a fiddler, and a banjo. Very interesting stuff!

 

Also anything by Rasputina, if you're interested in Cellos with a bit of a popular music bent. Particularly off their albums Frustration Plantation or Sister Kinderhook

Starker 
Starker Plays Baker

DAD 1032 


Released January 1, 2009

Janos Starker plays a jazz suite for cello and 17 percussion instruments accompanied by George Gaber. The pieces feature portraits of Jazz legends such as Miles, Dizzy, Duke and Trane among others. The sessions were recorded directly to 2-track analog tape in 1980 at the University of Indiana Opera House which is noted for its fine acoustics. Also included is the Sonata for Cello and Piano written by David Baker with Alain Planes accompanying Starker on piano. This is a purist audiophile recording with one of the 20th century's best cellists' - a treat not to be missed.

Dvorak's Cello Concerto played by Jacqueline du Pré and Chicago Symphony Orchestra is very nice IMO.

I just picked this up.

Also, if anyone is interested, this is an odd one out of my collection:

 

 

 

Black Angels is an experimental composition, and it's interesting to say the least, probably unlike any quartet piece I've ever heard before.  George Crumb, the composer, meant for the violin to be the devil's music and the cello to be the voice of God.  For those of you brave enough, check it out.

Zoe Keating is also nice.

Can't forget the Elgar Concerto if we're gonna mention Du Pre!

With $$$ set aside for tubes and tweaks, will see if one of my libraries has it...thanks, sphinxvc.

Silent One, I finally got this in the mail today.  It took 2 weeks to get here and when it finally did the jewel case was pretty beat up, but the DVD was in perfect condition.  

 

Anyway, this is an amazing recording--any other DAD music you recommend?  

 

Thanks for sharing!

Congrats on making that move and making this disc happen!

Man, I've been so broke over tweaks and upgrades, music purchases have slowed dramatically. When I find something, I share it here with y'all. One thing that made me mad about this DAD from Starker is I lack speakers. mad.gif And playing it made me wanna hear that way! biggrin.gif

She plays both Acoustic & Electric Cello. I have her CD "The Journey" and really enjoy the variety on this disc. And I especially love the track "Forbidden City." wink.gif

Born in ShanghaiChina, she moved to the United States at age 5.[1] She has appeared as a soloist with the San Diego Symphony[2] and other orchestras, and also plays in a progressive metal band, Off the Deep End. (And I'll add she does Hollywood Soundtracks as well...love her energy! - Silent One)

With Midori Gotō, she played in Antonín Dvořák's String Quartet No. 12 at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. With pianist William Joseph, she performed inMajorcaSpain for the International Philanthropy Summit.

She is currently touring as the featured cellist with Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour.[5]

[edit]Recordings

Guo recorded her first solo CD, Autumn Winds, a classical/new-age album.

She was featured on Al B. Sure!'s new single, "I Love It," from his upcoming album Honey I'm Home.

Guo is currently recording in the studio for her band Lotus Rising, and Industrial Classical Tribal Metal band.

[edit]Instruments

Guo performs on a 1787 Perry on loan from the Colburn Foundation.[6] On electric cello, she plays the Custom Tina Guo Model Yamaha SVC-200; she is endorsed byYamaha[7] and played their instrument at the NAMM Show 2009.[8][9]
