Thread: Variations on a Rococo Theme

  1. #1

    Variations on a Rococo Theme

    Here is a good example of the kind of "thing" I was trying to do when I arranged the Arpeggione Sonata. This piece is a respected work for cello by Tchaikovsky. It has some impressive technical demands, but the end effect has to be MUSIC. Norwegian artist Bente Illevold just released this video. See what you think:

    Hi Dave, would love to listen to the performance, but as usual, my JAWS screen reader ignores the link to it.... Could ask you to repost the link as a plain URL?

    I'm trying to get into the habit of including both, but I forgot this time. The original link is now corrected. (Thanks, Rick, for posting the link earlier.)

    Very nice performance. I had not heard of her before. She is going to be a star, maybe already is...

    I like the arrangement.
