    Debussy's Sonata for Cello and Piano performed by Haydn on the Gofriller Cello

    Haydn has sent in his Gofriler Cello performance of the Sonata for Cello and Piano in D minor by Claude Debussy (1862-1918).

    Sonata for Cello and Piano in D minor

    Debussy wrote this sonata in 1915. The Sonata for Cello was the first of a group of six sonatas for various instrumental combinations. This work represented a departure from Debussy's usual free-form impressionistic approach and his decision to use the sonata form was surprising (although he does invert the form).

    Excellent work Yo-Yo Haydn. You are becoming quite the master! Thanks for sending this.

    Hope you all enjoy this and comments, of course, are welcome.

    Haydn:

    Really enjoyed your artistry with the Gofriller. A beautiful instrument in the hands of one who knows how to play it. Being a Debussy devotee, this was a special and delightful surprise.....

    BRAVO, Haydn......

    Lovely Work , Haydn.

    You have a coaxed an impressive range of tone from the Gofriller.
    Excellent control of tempo, in this piece.

    I love the Harmonics at the end.

    regards Joe

    Thanks for the comments! The latest version of the Cello is a large improvement over the version I started a few months ago. The harmonics are one of the latest additions.

    Beautiful job, as always.

    One of my favorite viola pieces is Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola, and Harp. When the Garritan Viola comes out, someone will have to take a shot at that.

    That is gorgeous!
    Beautifully expressive... and very natural-sounding to my ears!

    Great work Haydn, that definitely puts the cello in a very good light... Did you perform this live, or basically tweaked it with all the controllers till it sounded right?? Could one possible play this live?? Just wondering...
