A. Dvorak - Humoresque No.7

Itzhak Perlman and Yo-Yo Ma play "Humoresque" (Suzuki Book 3).

I found this while idly cruising YouTube, looking for Suzuki pieces that I have played or intend to play. I am going to have to go back and work on my "Humoresque" to put a little more feeling into it. Well, actually, I think Perlman and Ma might be putting a little too much feeling into this, but I love it, and I am going to try to emulate it.

One of the comments on YouTube is "I didn't know this piece could be played that well."

BTW, I linked this on CelloBloggers with a "suzuki" tag. Thought it might be convenient to build a collection there... so please add others you find!

Hi! Thanks for your recent visit to my blog. I read about you and it looks like we have some things in common! I'm a cellist too, but it's been many a year since I've focussed on it. I'm more focused on fiddle, mandolin, banjo and singing right now.

Nice to meet you!

Hi GTGP, This was the only professional video I have found so far. There are some reasonably good student videos, though not many! Yours are very good!

I wish Suzuki would provide more information on the pieces they use (whether they are part of a larger work, for instance; background on the composer; instrument(s) for which the piece was originally written, for instance). Part of that might be a video collection of the pieces professionally played. And a CD or DVD of them more slowly played, especially the early pieces!

Hi to Cellogirl and Ava too! Thanks for dropping by! I found you both on Cellomania's grand list of blogging cellists.

They would make even "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" seem like a masterpiece.
