Shostakovich Cello Sonata in D minor, Op. 40: Second Movement – Musings with Inbal Segev

Hello Cellists,

The second movement of Shostakovich’s Cello and Piano Sonata, Op. 40, with its relentless drive is short yet very effective. In today’s video, I’ll share food for thought on getting the harmonics to speak, phrasing emphasis, milking the full value of glissandi, and fingerings for tricky triplets.

Please let me know if you have any comments and/or questions, I would love to hear from you. Thank you for watching!!
