Well, yes, you should love your cello playing, that too. But I was actually thinking about the internet. It is an incredible source for all things cello.
For instance, I am getting ready to play a slew of cello and piano music with my fabulously talented sister. One of the pieces we will be playing is Fauré’s Élégie (which I’m now much better at playing). It’s one thing to practice on your own, and quite another to play with the accompaniment. I went looking on the internet and was happy to find a website on YouTube called Pianoescort. There are many cello accompaniments including Élégie, Schubert’s Serenade, The Swan, and Haydn Cello Concerto in C, to name a few.
Of course, the pieces are played at a tempo which you may not be happy with. That’s why you convert the video to an MP3 via the program listentoyoutube.com and transfer to the Amazing Slow Downer program so you can slow it down or speed it up.
See my post from 6/4/17 “Get Some Accompaniment” for more detail on this, or write to me.
