Here is a video that Matt Heller (hellafrisch blogger and Calgary Philharmonic member) recently posted on his blog. Here he plays an excerpt from the Prelude of the first Bach cello suite. It’s great to hear Matt play again after reading so much of his writing for the past year. Matt and I played in the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival and American Russian Youth Orchestra together, and we also studied with Michael Hovnanian at Northwestern and played in the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, although our time at these institutions did not overlap. Matt has been playing in the New World Symphony for the past several years.
