They spoke about it
You like classical music but consider yourself an amateur? This series will let you discover the key works of the repertoire, according to the theme you choose. Let it take shape in you.
The cello, with its warm tone and wide register, can touch the listener deeply. It lends itself admirably to reinterpretations of vocal works and to pure lyricism as, for example, in the magnificent Swan solo in Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals. Dynamic and spirited, it communicates the effervescence of Spanish repertoire and the raw energy of dance in de Falla and Prokofiev as it does feelings of tenderness as imagined by Haydn and Mendelssohn. As varied as the composers that it inspired, it seduces today as in the past.
