@ehBeth,
That's easily the best interpretation of the piece I've ever heard. Thanks!

I'll be back to check others out and post more later, I bought a huge classical music album last night and have been busy exploring it.

@Robert Gentel,
Right now I am loving the Anner Blysma video of the Bach Cello Suite No. 1 prelude.

I have and also like - right now not as well - Janos Starker's playing of the same piece -





and here is Jacqueline du Pre and the first movement of Elgar's Concerto No. 1 -

You should include a Brazilian. Heitor Villa-Lobos was the son of a Spanish immigrant to Brazil; Heitor became arguably the greatest Brazilian composer. He wrote a series of works using Brazilian themes, motifs and musical values, but based on works of J. S. Bach, called the Bachianas Brazileiras. The Bachiana Brazileira No. 5 was scored for Soprano and eight cellos.

This performance by Victoria de los Angeles is a wonderful example. It would probably be not to difficult to find a better audio, and they apparently decided not to include any video in this one. The problem is that it is usually not performed as scored, often substituting a piano for the eight cellos, or using a single cello. But i think you might enjoy this.

I posted a few. Villa-Lobos definitely deserves a spot here though.

@ehBeth,
I really liked this one, and want to buy it.

I've bookmarked an Amazon mp3 store url for him to explore later, but if you happen to know exactly what release has this track please let me know.

It's pretty damn good isn't it? He's another guy I've bookmarked to buy since starting this thread.

I've now listened to the Villa-Lobos three times in a row. I'm glad you started this thread--i've not listened to that since there was a thread about cello works . . . started by JPB? It's definitely one of my all-time favorites.

@Robert Gentel,
I appreciate you starting this clasical music thread. I have a huge collection of LPs that I treasure.

Albuquerque has a classic music radio station, which is the only one I listen to. Partly because I was born with Absolute Pitch, and many types of music, especially country and asian, hurt my ears because they are not true to pitch.

Many people don't know what absolute and perfect pitch means, so here is information:

Definitions of absolute pitch on the Web:

the ability to identify the pitch of a tone
wordnet.princeton.edu/perl/webwn

perfect pitch
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/absolute_pitch

Rare ability to identify or to vocally produce any note on the musical scale, without reference to another, heard tone.

Absolutely disgusting! Bought their self-titled album seconds after finding this video and it's solid as a rock.

This is very cool. I enjoyed watching them play as much as I enjoyed the music. Reminds me of the dueling banjos in Deliverance, only this is with cellos and has more of a classical flare.
