Ask Alice, with Alice McVeigh

Classical Music Agony Aunt ALICE McVEIGH
on recorder playing, Lassus, J S Bach and the mass cello repertoire

Ask Alice

Hi fellow cellos!!!!

My old friend, now a principal cellist in Spain, David Johnstone, has been at it again!!!

He has made a very intelligent, hugely playable arrangement of Brandenburg 3 for ten (count 'em) celli, and recorded all the parts here:

BACH — Brandenburg Concerto 3 — One Man Cello Orchestra
BACH — Brandenburg Concerto 3 — One Man Cello Orchestra

It's a little implacable tempo-wise — which is what happens when you have to record ten parts separately and combine them electronically — but very well played and what an addition to the mass cello repertoire!!!

Check out his other arrangements too: JOHNSTONE MUSIC

Happy summer celloing!!!!..
