Matthew Barley/Cellist

Music is the hidden arithmetical exercise of a mind unconscious that it is calculating.



Played last night in Hammarö, which was a delightful experience – such warm people! I gave a masterclass in the afternoon for three talented cellists, which was a good experience; they were all so dedicated to the cello, and eager to play a learn. The concert was in a hall with a great acoustic – not too resonant which is perfect for this programme – and enjoyed myself thoroughly. Sometimes playing in smaller places can be the most rewarding as the audiences seem to just love music so much. Köping tonight – can anyone tell me why that is prounounce with a ‘sh’ sound for the K?
