I 'dare' not to reply to the post directly but I'm kinda curious what it's all about described in this thread http://www.8notes.com/f/33_265260.asp here !!!
Anyone here with experiences - surely are there some - just not here right now, hmmmm
To make it short and clear :
I am since quite a while searching for a kind of musical vacation sort of thing, stumbled upon this site, or better this thread, and now I'm fascinated by the thought of combining my next trip to Germany with the option of a cello-workshop - could be even a week or so, but it looks that they are quite fresh on their way and only weekendwise are offering classes . . .
So, anyone that can help me in my decision with reallife experiences or just his imagination or even wanna join my idea and come with me to the course? )
Yes , you see it's kinda raising me up . . .
this is the site I'm talking about: http://www.cello-piano-week.com
A couple of years ago I participated on a workshop in Italy/Toscana.
It was definitely the same musician couple as you are describing here!
They are really nice! Because His wife is playing the piano we could even
have piano accompaniment whenever we wanted!
Because I still stay in contact with them (through facebook - search for cello-piano-week
or cello-klavier-atelier) I know that their little daughter was born last year so -
if you still get accompaniment from Her - I don't know - you must ask them.
Trust me oh-that-cello they are really really kind and absolutely worth to meet!
From the human and even more from the musical point of view!
