I like the cello too. I'm partial to Bach's cello suite no. 1.

After years of waking up to baroque bass lines from the next room, I'm partial to transcriptions:

beautiful and beautiful. i didn't realize how much villa-lobos 'appropriated' from bach. of course they're still VERY different.

Yeah, that's the cool thing about Bach, you can play the same piece on any instrument and it becomes a completely different piece.

i really do prefer beethoven though. tmy favorite is by neither.

my favorite opera is lakme (i know you're an opera peep, so i know you know it). of course delibes came much later in time than either of those two dudes.

there is something about the flower duet that makes me unable to move. i love the east village opera company's version.

I agree. The flower duet is unspeakably beautiful.
