One Year Anniversary of Cello Journey!
Today is the one year anniversary of Cello Journey. It was one year ago that the first episode appeared online. Since then there have been 23 episodes. Thousands of people have seen the videos. The videos have been viewed approximately 250,000 times.
The music of Cello Journey has been played on a number of other podcasts including The Daily Source Code and Rocketboom. Thank you to all podcasters who have played the music.
There has been a great deal of wonderful feedback from viewers. Thank you very much for the feedback and e-mails. I think it is thanks to this encouragement that Cello Journey continues on. I hope you had a good year and will have a good year coming up.
There are some interesting episodes we are thinking of doing in the near future that will likely include Bach, Tchaikovsky, a Brahms sonata and Schumann.
Here is to another year of Cello Journey!

Cello Journey #22, Allegro Appassionato
In this episode we play the Allegro Appassionato by Camille Saint-Saens. This is a rather fast passionate and exciting piece. Part of its passion is in its abrupt changes of tempo and loudness. Even though it is exciting, it is in B minor and hence in a sad mode. Also many of its melodies come down rather than go up.

In the next episode we will play the Allegro Appassionato by Camille Saint-Saens. It should be available this weekend. There were many requests for this and I am looking forward to playing it. It has some nice melodies and rhythms. Please stay tuned.
The one year anniversary of Cello Journey is coming up on March 27. Thank you to everyone for watching, leaving comments, sending e-mails and your overall support.
