Cello Journey #14, August 21, 2006 – Papillon (Butterfly)

NEW Higher Quality Download ==> Cello Journey #14, August 21, 2006


The music for this episode is Papillon (Butterfly) by Gabriel Faure. Recently I happened to watch a butterfly in a field. It was either flying around quickly or it would land to rest and you could see its beautiful wings. In this piece there are fast parts and melodic parts. I think these represent the behavior of a butterfly. I hope you enjoy it.

NEW Higher Quality Download ==> Cello Journey #13, August 14, 2006, Special Edition


This is a special edition of Cello Journey. There is a pair of nice swans that live nearby and I thought I would put together a video of them along with the music of The Swan. They always swim together. I hope you enjoy it.

Episode Info:
In this episode we play a famous piece by the French composer Camille Saint-Saens called The Swan. It is a part of the Carnival of The Animals which is an orchestral suite but this is a section where the cello represents a swan and the accompaniment represents the rippling waters that the swan glides upon.

Since recently it was Mother’s Day I thought I would play something related to this. It is a piece by David Popper called “Once Upon More Beautiful Days: In Memory of My Parents”. I would like to dedicate it to all mothers that might be watching.

Episode 7, May 7, 2006 – Popper Tarantella

NEW Higher Quality Download ==> Cello Journey #7, May 7, 2006


In this episode I play another piece by David Popper. It is called a Tarantella. This type of dance comes from southern Italy. It is danced by couples and I think it is still played at some weddings to this day. It is fairly energetic, upbeat and I hope it gives you a bit of energy too. I recorded the comments separately because I found it a bit hard to concentrate right after talking.
