Lagrima by Tárrega

LAGRIMA When I study, between the pieces I'm working, I like to review something that I played in the early years of my studies, to find inspiration, to be moved by the beauty of simplicity. Let me be clear, I don't think that Tárrega's music is easy to play, indeed. It is a repertoire that requires extraordinary skill, in my opinion.

Cello Suite BWV 1008

Sabato scorso, lavorando a lezione il preludio dalla suite 1008 di Bach, mi sono ricordato che da qualche parte avevo una registrazione live del 2004. Erano anni in cui stavo sperimentando l'articolazione barocca con maggior flessibilità e libertà. Anni in cui ascoltavo più Bylsma, Wispelwey e Cocset piuttosto che Casals, Rostropovich e Maisky. Ho sempre trovato questa suite speciale all'interno dei 6 solo per violoncello. Un lungo monologo tra Bach e il Divino, combattuto tra momenti di grande drammaticità e sublime dolcezza. Purtroppo, l'amico e collega che registrò fece un errore nei minuetti che nella registrazione sono omessi. La condivido con voi sperando vi piaccia.
