outside listening: die 12 cellisten der Berliner Philharmoniker

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in outside listening

The Berlin Philharmonic is regarded as one of the world’s top orchestras, so it comes as no surprise that they would also possess a cello section of incredible talent and depth. The fact that the section has become its own critically-acclaimed ensemble is really quite unique. As for this combo of Faure’s Pavane sung by 12 cellos…pure gorgeousness. (Now if only they would release their arrangements).

outside listening: yo-yo ma + bach suite no. 1

On September 7 2015, Yo-Yo Ma delivered a performance of all 6 Bach Suites to an audience of 5,000 at the BBC Proms–no breaks, no intermission, nobody else on the program. You can hear the entire performance here, see it here, here, here, here & here, and read about it here.

As if performing 2+ hours of music weren’t enough of a feat of focus and stamina, he offered up this encore at the end. Awesome.
