In today’s masterclass, I discuss many techniques I use when playing the fourth movement of Elgar’s Cello Concerto, including vibrato control, phrasing nuances, how to work on difficult technical passages, studying with the score, and more.
For those of you that want to dig further, you can buy a facsimile of the orchestral manuscript here: https://www.baerenreiter.com/en/shop/product/details/BVK1928/
Here is a quote from Barenreiter’s description of the manuscript’s facsimile: “When asked what significance the Cello Concerto had, Elgar replied: ‘a person’s attitude to life.’ Today it is one of the most popular works in the cello repertoire.”
Please let me know if you have any comments and/or questions, I would love to hear from you. Thank you for watching!!
