Performing Art Beyond Note and Sound (violoncello lesson)


The cello concerto written by András Mihály is a good example of how to teach the Hungarian manner, spirit and emotions in music. The piece teaches the deeply the composed music is rooted in the Hungarian folk heritage. The lesson revealed how to evoke bright sound from the string instrument via freedom with artistic shaping. It highlighted the important connection between the player's body and the body of the instrument and how this connection created the expected beautifully vibrating sound.
