LSO Master Class Cello
Gilliver:Hello, and welcome to the YouTubeSymphony Orchestra masterclass for the cello. My name's Rebecca Gilliver,and I play principal cello in the London SymphonyOrchestra. We're going to startwith quot;William Tell,quot; appropriately enough, because it does usuallystart a concert,
which is certainlya rather scary moment for any principal cello. You start completely alone, and the first two bars,it's just you, but relax,'cause on the third bar, there's a lovely choirof your colleagues as all the other celloscome in and playa beautiful harmony with you.
So althoughin an audition situation, you feel incredibly lonelyon those top Bs, you just need to thinkof the harmony that's gonna becoming in behind you when you're actuallyplaying it in concert, and that'll inspire youand give you courage. So I'll just playthe beginning all by myself. Rossini'squot;William Tell Overturequot;
Now, because we haven'tgot much time, I'm not gonna playall through those Bs, but in an audition situation,you must, and you must make sure they'reexactly the right length and a beautiful soundall the way through. So, skippingto the third entry of the first cello, there'sa lovely moment here,
because the third celloplays this line. playing music and then you get tocome in. playing music and that's whereeverybody else comes in. Now, these three GSharpskeep coming back. They come back four times. playing music
Now, those Gsharpscome back four times, and each time,there's a different harmony in the other cellos,so you must choose a color that fits the harmonythey're doing. The first time,it's just a beautiful. playing music E major. The second one,and it's a bit different.
Cello Basics Cello First Position
Hi. I'm Melanie Yarger at Milano Music Centerin Mesa, Arizona for Expert Village. In the last segment, we spoke about how to move thebow across the string. How to pull sound out of the cello. Well, that's right hand technique.There's also left hand. The left hand we use to finger the notes, up and down the wholelength of the finger board. We are going to start in first position. Positions happenin half steps. This is half position. Then you've got first position, second position,there are positions all the way down to the very end of the finger board. Okay, we startthat by pretending like we're holding a bottle. Okay! Nice rounded fingers and thumb. Placethe thumb in the middle of the neck, very
loose and relaxed, just like the right hand.And place your fingers down, just far enough for the string to hit the finger board. Andthere you go, those are your notes.So,that's first position on the cello. When your fingers are down on the cello, it does takea little bit of strength, but not too much. You want to very slightly pull the stringtowards you and not tighten your muscles in your shoulder or your arm. It's very easyto tense your thumb and tense your shoulder and, all of a sudden, it's very tight. Rememberwe need to stay very relaxed to play the cello correctly. So very relaxed shoulder, justwork your way down shoulder, arm, hand, thumb and you have a very relaxed left hand position.
