March 11th 2018

Thanks so much for yesterday and looking forward to seeing you on Friday night!!! Have got a new Duke Ellington which looks great but we won't shove it in if it's too hard. If *possible*, could those of you who haven't yet shared the concert with Unicef link on Facebook think about doing so? It's THE way to get donations from friends who'd like to support you/it but who can't make the concert!!!!Yours very gratefully,AlicePS Might bring the parts for the Duke Ellington tomorrow. We could e ...Continue Reading

http://www.aitchisoncellos.com/publications/cello-and-bow-articles/technical-articles-about-the-cello/humidity-and-cellos-2/ I was worried yesterday eve about whether I might be getting a buzz on the cello, and found this article.Have just 'bathed' the cello in the small loo (with hot shower running hard) for ten minutes, like Colin Carr, and it sounds much happier now.Be careful, obviously, about getting water on the varnish. I put it in in the Hercules cello holder (note: REMOVED THE BOWS) bu ...Continue Reading

Cello for hire

January 8th 2018

To the lovely members of the cello section, I am looking to borrow/hire a cello whilst my cello is having some repairs. It was unfortunately knocked over during a carol service in the Christmas holidays, and has a horrible crack along the back (see photo) If you know of anyone who has a cello I could borrow/hire, or a recommendation of where I might be able to hire one, then please let me know asap. Until then I am unfortunately going to be 'out of action' with no instrument to play. On Alice's' recommendation, I ...Continue Reading

(Sorry, sent the unfinished one, not the finished email!!!! Still figuring out how to do technology here, being dumb.)So, what I need to know is dates on Sundays in Jan and Feb when you can play, so we can fix on the best possible date.Have just bought £113 of new and exciting cello music from the Absolute Zero viola quartet (whose leader is a friend of mine and great arranger, despite being a violist!!!!)He has arranged some of their best-selling viola quartets for cellos.

Right: I have enough green lights to say that the concert, at my church (URC, Petts Wood, newly refurbished with losing half the pews and with the addition of a full-size, nearly-new Yamaha grand piano costing over £25,000) in aid of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar is going to happen!!!!The BSO wind quintet is up for it, as it the Giardini string quartet.  ...Continue Reading

Fw[2]: Cello parts

November 18th 2017

Hi fellow cellos: Alan here, helping us out!!!! Please prioritise bowing the Strauss, assuming you can find the time before Mon., as (a) it's the most demanding (for us) and (b) Si is meant to do it on Monday. Though not exclusively, I don't think.

I've printed out 4 copies of the cello part just in case (like me)you're not sure if it to avoid lots of 'giving the game away' practice when we get there. The part is quite small print and filled the rest of the page with black ink so probably the most expensive sheet music in the world.

Iberia parts

September 19th 2017

Dear friends,I'm really sorry there weren't enough parts of /Iberia/. Alan KNOWS we have six desks of cellos - we'd had six desks potentially for years and years, though not everyone can always make it - and I volunteered last season to copy personally any extra parts that might be needed, assuming he'd make them available of course, but he was resistant.  I don't understand this, as I wasn't asking him to do it. I just don't understand it.Marion has said for ages that we have to ...Continue Reading
