POPPER Dance of the Elves | KOBEKINA and BALDEYROU

Dear Friends, I hope you’re well and before wishing you a wonderful summer and coming back in September full of energy and motivation, I wanted to offer you a fun video and collab with amazing rising star Anastasia Kobekina. Don’t hesitate to check out and subscribe to her Instagram account @anastasiakobekina and her YouTube channel! https://www.youtube.com/user/Chellovechik We decided to perform and record Popper’s Elfentanz opus 39 (Dance of the Elves), one of the most virtuosic and exciting encore written for cello, but this time in a very personal arrangement for clarinets, glockenspiel and… TRIANGLE of course! David Popper was a famous Bohemian cellist and prolific composer (1843-1913), he made an incredible career as a virtuoso cellist, a chamber musician (he played for Brahms himself with the Budapest quartet), a cello and composition teacher, writing all type of repertoire and notably some instructional pieces as the incredible cello studies (I may record a few in the future 😇). David Popper was one of the last great cellists who did not use an endpin. An 1880 drawing of Popper playing in a string quartet shows that although he started his cello career without using an endpin, he adopted it later in his life. On this video, Anastasia is playing on a 1743 Giovanni Battista Guadagnini. I’m playing 3 different Buffet Légende in A (Green Line, Mopani and boxwood) with Vandoren BD4 and V12 3,5 reeds, a Buffet Tosca Bass (Vandoren B40 and 3,5 traditional reeds) and a Buffet Contrabass from 1935. Hope you’ll like the result and don't hesitate to give me ideas 😁 Take care and stay safe! #elfentanz #anastasiakobekina #nicolasbaldeyrou
