Israeli cellist Amit Peled is forging an international career of the highest caliber both as a soloist and as an enthusiastic teacher. The American Record Guide hails him as "having the flair of the young Rostropovich" and he is one of the youngest cello professors ever to be appointed to a major conservatory in the United States (Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University). His recordings are often heard on the Israeli National Classical Music Radio & TV, NPR, WGBH Boston, WFMT Chicago, WQXR NY, Saarläischer Rundfunk, Deutschland Radio Berlin, Hessischer Rundfunk, Radio France and Swedish National Radio & TV. He is a featured guest artist in many of the world's major concert halls, such as Wigmore Hall in London, Alice Tully Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York City, Salle Gaveau, Paris, National Auditorium, Barcelona, Konzerthaus Berlin and Tel Aviv's Man Auditorium. In recent seasons, he has given solo performances, such as the European Philharmonic Orchestra, Radio Symphony Orchestra Saarbrücken, Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya, London Soloists, Jerusalem Symphony, Israel Chamber Orchestra, Tel Aviv Soloists, Haifa Symphony, Musica Vitae Chamber Orchestra, Philharmonic, Hartford Symphony, Philharmonie Südwestfalen, Nashua Symphony, Ashland Symphony, Chautauqua Symphony and the Irving Symphony. Peled frequently participates in prestigious festivals at the Marlboro Music Festival, Newport Music Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Festival, Seattle Chamber Music Festival, Cape Cod Music Festival, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Moselfestwochen, Strings in the Mountains, Four Seasons, Båstad, Prussia Cove, Millstatt Musikwochen and Kfar Blum. Upcoming projects include launching a series of CD's and DVD's of the major cello repertoire under the CTM Classics label, which will release the first volume in January 2007. Moreover, as an advocate of Israeli music, he recently recorded the Cello Concerto by Mark Kopytman with the Tel Aviv Soloists under the JMC label and later in the 2006/2007 season, he will premier a concerto dedicated to him by composer Erel Paz with conductor Ilan Volkov. Peled plays a rare Andrea Guarneri cello circa 1689.

When did you first start to play the cello?

I started quite late when I was 10 years old. I grew up in a rural Kibbutz in Israel and when I was in 4th grade, we were asked what instrument we would like to play. I picked the cello, because of a girl I wanted to get to know. I did not really know anything about a cello. But the music room was beneath our classroom, so I used to see and hear the girl all the time. I told the music teacher that I wanted to play the cello. She told my mother about it and my mother was shocked. My mother always wanted me to play the accordion so I could sit around the campfire and lead the songs. The girl was 14 and she was more advanced. However, she stopped after a few years and I got stuck with it (Laughs).

The music classroom was very warm and very nice, but the teachers were not so good. My teacher was a student of Janos Starker. However, I did not really understand what he was talking about. He was Hungarian and he had gone to Bloomington, Indiana, to study with Starker. For 4 years he taught me the Starker method of left hand playing. But until I was 14, I did not really know where and what the notes were. Moreover, I was not serious about the cello, spending most of my time playing basketball. One day the flute teacher in the local music school, who came from Jerusalem and was teaching me theory classes, took my mother aside and told her that he thought I was really talented, and that I must go to the "big city" to have a good teacher. He recommended Uri Vardi.

The Well-Tempered Cellist

The Power of Attention

by Selma Gokcen

"You're not paying attention," said the Hatter. "If you don't pay him, you know, he won't perform."

-- Lewis Carroll, from Alice's Adventure in Wonderland

Next we look at what it means to undo and to unlearn habits, and to open out the attention, a brave undertaking, to say the least, for the conservatoire-trained Western performing musician.

A perceptive friend (not a musician) made the comment after attending a top-level cello master class recently: Is it really that hard to play the cello? Even after so many years of work? What are these musicians still struggling with, despite a training that begins in childhood and ends some fifteen to twenty years later?

Making music is a supremely beautiful act of attention. One is giving of oneself on every level, and with a desire to communicate in a way that can open the heart of player and listener immediately. The flow of attention possesses energy and acts upon the psychophysical self. It changes brain waves, heart rate, body temperature and the like in both the player and the audience. The question is this: how have our patterns of attention developed during the course of training as performing musicians? My observations after twenty-five years of teaching have led me to a simple conclusion. Conservatoire-trained Western musicians have been schooled, deliberately or unconsciously, in a narrow focus of attention which makes their work more difficult, potentially injurious, and infinitely less rewarding. So no matter what instrumental skills they learn, the fundamental skill of paying attention, which is an important function of coordination, is not addressed. As one of my teachers once said to me, "Yes, we are all supposed to pay attention, but what are we paying with?" In what direction has the 'psychic muscle' developed?

Pedagogical Reference of David Popper's

Hohe Schule des Violoncellspiels-Vierzig Etuden, Op.73

by Dr. I-Bei Lin

David Popper's Hohe Schule des Violoncellspiels, Op. 73, a collection of forty etudes for violoncello, has become a universal pedagogical tool for young and old cellists alike. No amateur or professional cellist could possibly have gotten by without learning at least one or two etudes by Popper, yet there exists few guides or reference books to introduce the cellist to these etudes. This article serves as a pedagogical reference for teachers and students.

Since most pupils have difficulty analyzing the significant techniques used in each etude, it is crucial for instructors to select the appropriate etude for each student. If a particular technique or musical element is to be learned, the tables below, divided into different categories, are available as a guideline or reference. The basic structural analysis of each etude contains: 1) right-hand techniques (TABLE 1), 2) left-hand techniques (TABLE 2), 3) keys (TABLE 3), 4) tempo (TABLE 4), 5) rhythm (TABLE 5), and 6) etude order from easiest to hardest (TABLE 6).

>> Orchestra Auditions

batmanvcl: The difficulty of having a committee "agree" on someone to hire would be a lot more significant if the committee literally HAD to agree. At the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, we listen and then vote with no discussion. Then, if the person gets enough votes to be considered for the job (6 out of 9), we have an opportunity to discuss the candidate, if desired. The secret ballot vote (with no discussion) all but eliminates the idea of a "popularity contest" affecting the outcome of the audition. Many people who have won auditions here in recent years did so having less than a unanimous vote. It's hard enough to get 6 or 7 people to agree, so we figure that if someone does that, they merit strong consideration for the position. If certain committee members have strong reservations, they can air them after the binding vote has been taken, but before the final decision.

I can say that maestro Boulez has integrated himself very well into our audition process. Although the cello audition ended without hiring someone, Boulez did recently choose a new principal percussion for us from between two very strong candidates. There was input from the committee, but Boulez stepped up and made the final decision.

Before the inevitable discussion over "how is it possible that an orchestra can hire nobody?" starts, here are just a couple of other points about auditions that people tend to forget:

From the outside looking in at the process, it's tempting to view it in terms that are very black-and-white. But since many elements of music are, by their nature, intangible, auditions generally are not black-and-white at all, but very "gray". It's not a figure skating competition, where the person who performs all the required elements better than anyone else automatically gets the gold medal. This is where the huge gray area in auditions comes in, which some people neglect to think about.

Every candidate can exercise control over one part of the process: the way he/she sounds. But that person can't control what the members of the committee do once they have finished playing. Committee members will think what they think, and they will vote the way they vote for reasons which are legitimate to them. This is a gray area.

Every musician has his or her own particular ways of making music. Person "A" has his style, I have mine, etc. I can't really speak for other orchestras, but here, people listen to many things beyond one's technical command of the cello. Playing the cello well and just being generally "musical" are only part of what a committee hears. I also hear the things which make a person sound like him or herself, if that makes sense -- these deeper qualities aren't always readily changeable because they are so much a part of a person's approach to the cello and to making music. A majority of the committee must view the innate musicality that a candidate displays as a good match for our particular orchestra. And everyone judges this on their own terms -- a gray area.

If members of a committee do not view someone as a match, it doesn't have to be because that person did anything "wrong." Again, it is NOT that black-and-white. And a "no" vote is often not a comment on the person's level of preparation or their level of cello playing. When the vote is taken, it becomes a very personal decision for each member of the committee. Do I want to sit next to this person, possibly starting tomorrow?

Nobody enjoys seeing an audition process end with nobody being hired, but, as I said, we aren't just looking for the person who jumped through the hoops the best. Beyond that, there must be something intangible, something which makes several of the committee members agree that it is an ideal "match."

This is the part of the process that candidates have no control over, and though it may be frustrating to hear that, in a way it makes preparation simpler: just come and do "what you do" at as high a level as you can do it. What happens after that, you can't take too personally.

>> Dvorak Concerto

grace422: I am working on Dvorak, first movement. In the third big section after the angst ridden theme that starts e-flat to a-flat there is a section of 16th note sequences. Each of them repeats four times before moving up. I have experimented with playing them fast in the UH, LH and balance point of the bow, but can't get them fast enough. Where should one play these on the bow?

cbrey: I assume you are referring to the section in G-sharp minor where the flute and oboe have the melody. Are you starting the first of each pair of sixteenths upbow? The string crossings are much easier that way. Upper half, plenty of good solid contact with the string, not too much bow. Learn the flute and oboe parts so that you can sing them or play them, and that will show you how to organize and phrase the cello part.

>> Mozart Marriage of Figaro Overture

CaptainCello: Does anyone have a good fingering suggestion for bars 1-9, and 157-165? I can only come up with decent fingerings, but nothing great.

zambocello: Doesn't it start something like 0 4 0 4 0 ...... ?

cbrey: Zambo's fingering is the best... especially for pops concerts... but failing that, this seems to work well for me:

>> Haydn D Major Concerto Cadenza

grace422: Does anybody know which edition has Feuermann's cadenza for the Haydn D Major?

G M Stucka: There are two first-movement cadenzas in the International Gevaert-Rose edition. The second one is Feuermann's.

>> Raya Garbousova

David Sanders: Raya Garbousova Tribute (1909-1997) by David Sanders On January 28, 1997, the cello world lost a great and beloved friend. The death of Raya Garbousova was a monumental loss not only to the cello world, but to the entire world of classical music. One of the most important cellists, and one of the best-known and most admired musicians of the twentieth century, she was loved and respected by all who knew her.

According to the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, Madame Garbousova was born in Tbilisi (Tiflis) (Russian Georgia) on September, 25th 1906. [Editor's note: On September 24th, 1994, Garbousova told me that she was born in 1909, and that the New Grove, as well as Baker's Biographical Dictionary, which lists her dates as October 10, 1905, were both wrong.] Her father was principal trumpet in the Tiflis Symphony, and a conservatory professor. She began piano lessons at age four, but later insisted on changing over to the cello. Her first teacher was Konstantin Miniar, a pupil of Davidov.

Garbousova studied at the Tbilisi Con servatory from 1914-23, and made her debut in Moscow in 1923. In 1924, at the age of 15, she performed the Rococo Variations in Moscow and Leningrad, where one critic compared her to Emanuel Feuermann, opting in favor of Garbousova's "talent and depth of emotion." She met Feuermann when she was 18, and they became very close friends. At around this same time, she was playing chamber music with Nathan Milstein and Vladimir Horowitz.

In 1925 Garbousova went to Leipzig, in tending to study cello with Klengel. Klengel interviewed her for three hours, listening to her play etudes and concertos, and proclaimed that she could not be his student because she already knew everything. She went from there to Berlin, where she studied one summer with Hugo Becker. She made her recital debut in Berlin in 1926, where the critics raved about her "colossal talent." From Germany, she went on to debut in Paris in 1927 and London in 1928. While in Paris, she met and studied with Casals. Casals urged her to study with Diran Alexanian, who became a tremendous influence on her cello technique and musicianship.

Her playing was distinguished by charm, outgoing temperament, beautiful tone and elegant technique, which won her wide acclaim among the cellists of her day. She made her Town Hall debut in New York in 1934, where Olin Downes of the New York Times wrote, "Miss Garbousova's technique is the vehicle of a contagious temperament, musicianship and taste. The crowning fact is the distinction of her style." From then on she appeared in recitals and with most of the major orchestras all over the world, making her home in Paris. In 1946 [1939 according to New Grove] she became a citizen of the United States.

Madame Garbousova knew all the great musicians and composers of the twentieth century. In addition to Feuermann, Milstein and Horowitz, she was also friends with Piatigorsky, Rose, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, Huberman, Szigeti, Morini, Stern, Oistrakh, Fournier, du Pr�, Starker, Rostropovich, Nelsova, Greenhouse, and many others too numerous to mention.

Garbousova was a great champion of modern music, and was responsible for many first performances, including the Martinu Third Sonata, Prokofiev Sonata and the Barber Concerto, which she commissioned and was written for her. Among the other works written for her are the Cello Concerto by Vittorio Rieti (1956), and the Rapsodia notturna by Karol Rathaus (1950). She also introduced works by Creston, Hindemith, and Lopatnikoff, and edited many new works for publication.

In addition to her concerts and recordings, Madame Garbousova was in great demand as a teacher, giving master classes at Aspen, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and Indiana University, as well as in China. She was on the faculty of Northern Illinois University in DeKalb for many years, and in 1970 she became professor of cello at Hartt College of Music in Connecticut. She was a generous supporter of the Chicago Cello Society, giving several Master Classes and much moral support.

I had the privilege of knowing Raya Garbousova for over 23 years, and she was a tremendous influence on my cello playing and music-making. Being around her made you love the cello and music. At the time I had arranged to study with her, I was a member of the Lyric Opera and Grant Park orchestras. The week before my first lesson I was very nervous about playing for her for the first time. I was at Kenneth Warren and Sons to buy some strings, and she came into the shop. We hadn't met in person, just spoken over the phone, so I introduced myself and told her that I was looking forward to playing for her, but that I was nervous. She started talking to me, and within a few minutes, I felt as if I had known her all my life ... all my nervousness disappeared. Her ability to put people completely at ease was one of the things that made studying with her special. You knew you were in the presence of a great artist, but you felt comfortable enough to play your best.

At my earliest lessons with Raya, she would always be smoking a cigarette. She would hold the cigarette either in her mouth or in her bow hand while she played, and when the ashes would fall over her beautiful Guadagnini cello, she would calmly brush them off! I learned from Roger Malitz, now professor of cello at Ball State University, who had been a student of Raya's before me, that she had done the same thing at his lessons several years earlier�with cigars! One day, I had been playing for about half an hour at one of my lessons, when she complained, "Haven�t you noticed any thing?" I hadn't, and she proudly pointed out that she had quit smoking. As far as I know, she never smoked again.

A lesson with Raya Garbousova wasn't just a cello lesson--it was an event. My lessons generally lasted at least 3 to 4 hours, and always included a wonderful lunch. Sometimes she would prepare it herself, and other times we would go out. The ones she prepared were great, not just because she was a great cook, but because they gave us plenty of time to talk about music, the cello, and life. She would complain that I wouldn't drink a little vodka, or at least a beer, but I always declined, saying that I had to drive home.

Raya demonstrated a lot at lessons, and it was magical. No matter how I envisioned a piece, how well prepared I was, she would always bring to it more than I could ever imagine. In pieces like the Debussy Sonata there was such fantasy and imagination; in the last variation of Strauss' Don Quixote, I would get chills from the pure emotion; in the Rococo Variations, the style, grace and elegance swept me into another world. It was a constant thrill and challenge, and an incredible learning experience.

As a teacher, she was inspiring, and also very demanding. When I played a difficult passage well, she would shift her focus to a different aspect of the piece and say "Good, but what about..." Then, when I would focus on this new point, and do it well, she would say, "Yes, but what about...?" She was very generous with her praise, but she always let me know that she thought I could play even better. The love and warmth she showed her students made them believe in themselves.

It is not easy to put into words the profound effect studying the cello and music with Madame Garbousova had on me, and, I'm sure, on others who were fortunate enough to have studied with her. Knowing her and being her student was as important to me as anything in my entire career. She started out as my teacher, and she became my friend. I will miss her always.

>> Cello Video Compilation

cellopro: This is the beginning of a post that will attempt to be a chronicle of videos of all major cello works that have been recorded. IF you have a link for a video that is NOT here, please post in the replies. We are not just looking for a particular piece, but rather a compilation of different professional artists and their renditions of the various works. I have begun research in YouTube, and will continue to compile until that site is exhausted.

IF you have a video online somewhere (don't want to mess with hosting right now), please send link to Paul Fleury at cellopro@musician.org I will endeavor to include it if it is of professional quality. This is not a vanity post, it is meant as a compilation study guide for cellists to compare performances and styles. New compositions are welcomed, as is rock, jazz, new age, metal, world beat (see Miscellaneous section below). Do NOT send videos without consent of owners! They will be removed if found immediately. All videos contained herein have been found in public areas of the web.

I have now divided this post into two parts, the first for the classical repetoire, and the one right below it for MISCELLANEOUS GOODIES. This will consist of non-classical genre and oddball videos. Enjoy them both.

For all cellists out there, this will be an invaluable resource for study of the various pieces.

Here's the list alphabetically.
