Episode #4– Cello Sonata in e minor (1st movement) by Antonio Vivaldi; with Charlie Nilles, bass
Jan 2nd, 2017 by celloslowjams
Happy new year! Thank to you all of you for taking a few minutes from your day to listen to cello music. We have lots of great repertoire and collaborations in the works for 2017. It's truly my honor to play for you, and I'm looking forward to bringing you more contemplative cello music this coming year.
This week's recording is the first movement (Largo) from one of Vivaldi's most famous cello sonatas. I'm a big fan of Vivaldi (and baroque music, for that matter), and while this piece is performed quite frequently, some of his lesser known sonatas are absolutely beautiful, too. (Spoiler alert-- you may be hearing them very soon on this podcast!)
Special thanks to my husband, bassist Charlie Nilles, for playing with me and assisting with all the technical elements of this podcast.
This week's performers:
Jessica Sammis Nilles, cello
Charlie Nilles, bass
Wishing you a great start to 2017,
