One of the trio pieces we looked at but set aside for now was another variation on Rameau's Tambourin. It wasn't nearly as interesting or as extensive as the duet that PFS and I have been working on for some time now. I surprised myself by playing the top part (from memory) to show them the version I knew - and I played it flawlessly(!) We decided to put this trio version aside and we'll talk later about playing the duet version in the fall.
Since we're playing several short cello trios, the conductor wondered aloud which piece she should drop from the playlist -- in unison the three cellos immediately called out: "dump Pachelbel!" She laughed and commented that an orchestra is not a democracy... and that's when we realized that for tonite, at least, this orchestra was a Cellocracy.
And we're the Cellocrats.
Yeah, Cellos Rule!
Cellocrats, vote down Pachabel - check out the YouTube rant http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdxkVQy7QLM
Maybe we should consider changing the name of Cellobloggers to Cellocrats?
Hehe that would be cool. Cellocrats. I like that. :) *Runs around screaming Cellocrats at the top of my lungs*
