Episode 76: Yes, It Really Existed! Meet the Shoulder Cello
Upcoming Events: June 14 – Bach Six Sonatas for Violin and Keyboard with harpsichordist Paul Cienniwa at the Boston Early Music Festival
Inquiries from my Inbox: Robert asks: “Is the page turner the only ‘on stage’ position in the music industry that it is proper to totally ignore?”
Random Musical Thought: Can one claim to have truly heard a piece of music if they’ve never experienced it performed live?
Main Topic: A conversation about the violoncello da spalla with luthier and violinist Dmitry Badiarov, including recordings of the instrument played by Badiarov, Sigiswald Kujiken, and the Bach Collegium Japan.
