Recording in progress
We take a look behind the scenes at a recent recording session of pieces from our forthcoming Cello syllabus. Over eight days in December and February cellists, pianists, producers and engineers gathered at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Royal College of Music to record every piece from our forthcoming new Cello syllabus. Later in the year we will be releasing these recordings on CD and as audio downloads. They are designed to provide an informative and inspiring resource for teachers and learners as they explore new repertoire and prepare for exams. Altogether six cellists and six pianists were involved in the project. Between them they performed 164 pieces and created just over ten hours of recorded music. Repertoire ranged from the simplest, anonymous French Bourrée at Grade 1 to the Albéniz Tango set for Grade 8. In these photos cellist Tim Wells and pianist Dominique Wong-Min are performing works from Grades 2 and 5, under the watchful eye of our expert engineers, producers and music editors!
