Updated time for 2/6 (and updated calendar)

Hi friends,

I thought I should alert you to a slight change in the time of my duo concert with Mia Bella D’Augelli tomorrow at the Musical Offering Cafe. To accommodate an earlier event at the cafe, we’ll start at 8pm (instead of 7:30). We’ve also added a brand new Mia Bella D’Augelli piece called Heavy Tread. It’ll make you feel things you never knew were possible.
Also, I interview Mia for the latest episode of my podcast, “the Crossover Cellist.” You can listen here: https://www.buzzsprout.com/200794/941688-ep-18-mia-bella-d-augelli
or on apple podcasts, spotify, etc.
Here’s some details (from the previous post).

February 6th Mia Bella D’Augelli and I are playing a duo concert at the Musical Offering Cafe at 7:30, featuring the mighty Schulhoff Duo. It’s a hell of a piece. We’re also playing the Lullaby and Grotesque by Rebecca Clarke, 2 of my original pieces, a BRAND NEW piece by Ms. D’Augelli, Aubade by Godard, and the Prelude and Fugue in C minor from Well Tempered Clavier Book 1, by J.S. Bach.

Friday January 25th I’m playing an all Bach concert with pianist, Derek Sup. He is playing Preludes and Fugues 1-6 from Well Tempered Clavier Book 1, I am playing the 1st suite for solo cello in G Major, and we are both playing the Viola da Gamba Sonata in G minor and some choral prelude arrangements along with their corresponding chorales. THE PUBLIC IS INVITE TO SING ALONG! It will be so fun. Classical Karaoke! This concert is a continuation of the Glenview Classical Series at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Oakland.

It’s also the first concert in a new series called the “Bach Project,” which is a series of all J.S. Bach pieces, with, possibly, the occasional Bach-related piece.

Saint-Saens Op. 168 Video

“I loathe sentimentality, and it’s name is Saint-Saens.” – Claude Debussy

Relax, dude. Your music is good, too.

Sometimes you just have to give it up for a good piece of music, and this is one of those times. The Sonata for Bassoon and Piano, Op. 168, is a great piece. All 3 movements are great. One major difference between Bassoon and cello is that Bassoon can play a low B -flat, whereas cello in it’s standard tuning goes as low as the C above that. Regrettably, the 2nd and 3rd movements of this piece go lower than that C, but the 1st (and also my favorite) movement falls into the cello’s range perfectly. Here is a video of the up-and-coming young pianist, Anastasia Reshetikhin, and me, playing the 1st movement:

Recorded and filmed at 25th St. Studios in Oakland, CA, by Jamie Freeman Turner.

Listen to a discussion between Anastasia and me here: https://www.buzzsprout.com/200794/796941-ep-8-anastasia-reshetikhin

Well Tempered Klavier Book 1 Preludes and Fugues 1-6
Suite for Solo Cello in G Major
Gamba Sonata in G Minor
A selection of chorale preludes, arranged for cello and piano, paired with their corresponding chorales. The public will be invited to sing along with the chorales. Scores will be provided.

http://www.buzzsprout.com/200794

Next, I have been focusing a lot of energy into an upcoming concert with the Composer Arranger Performer Orchestra at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Oakland, Friday, August 31st, at 7:30PM. We are featuring two esteemed guest artists, violinist Evan Price, and St. PLCO music director Derek Sup. Evan Price will perform his Violin Concerto, and this is not to be missed. The rest of the program is original compositions and arrangements by members of the group, including my String Symphony. Also, I roped my mother, Carla Picchi, into playing (thanks mom!). Here’s the facebook page with info: https://www.facebook.com/events/983351521837709/
Sunday, August 26th, Ariel and I are hosting a show at 6PM with some friends and a band from down south called Sprain. It’s gonna be hella fun! Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/2164332260560045/

Looking past August, Cosa Nostra Strings is playing every weekend at the Soiled Dove (downtown Oakland burlesque/acrobatic show) starting late September going till mid November. However, Im subbing out for a couple of projects. Trio E’Trange is playing Anne Rainwater’s Vernon Salon Oct 19, and I’m playing a new opera by Brett Carson the weekend of October 26th at the Temescal Center for the Arts. Look for a Town Quartet concert around then as well.
Other things on the horizon are a chamber music/lecture series, and the Bach Project. Aug26_2018HouseShowCAPO_flyer_8-31-18QUANTUM2IMG_0735
