Matthew Barley/Cellist

Music is the language that permits me to converse with the beyond.

On The Road

I’ve just started my On The Road tour in Sweden in the Dieselverksteden just outside Stockholm. It’s a very nice venue, and had a lovely crowd, many of whom were young cellists who had come to my workshop in the afternoon. The Swedish audiences are quite quiet, both when listening and when clapping – I think they liked it!

It was a milestone for me, as it was my first full length completely solo recital since my shoulder problems, and a full solo evening is the ultimate test. The shoulder was a bit sore by the end, but basically great as it didn’t bother me while I was playing, so I’m very relieved. It’ll be fun driving up and down Sweden with all the Autumn colours. Full tour details here.
