cello & viola da gamba

First public performance with the Viola da Gamba

After only six months of learning I will have my first public appearance as a viol player in the Kohn Foundation Bach Cantata series on Sunday. I’m excited and terrified in equal measure.

Venue: Duke’s Hall

BWV 204 “Ich bin mir vergnügt”
BWV 76 “Die Himmel erzählen die Ehre Gottes”

Leader: Rachel Podger

New cello!!!

Very exciting news!!!
I have recently bid on a cello in an auction at Sotheby’s and got it!!!

So please meet my gorgeous new cello by John Betts (around 1800).

At the moment it’s in modern setup, but I will soon return it to it’s former state as a classical cello with a removable endpin, wooden tailpiece and of course gut strings. Can’t wait!!
