ProMusica cellists Marc Moskovitz, Cora Kuyvenhoven, Nathaniel Chaitkin and Joel Becktell will be in the Classical 101 studios with Boyce Lancaster this morning at 9 am to perform and talk about their upcoming weekend concert.

All-cello recordings have been quite popular over the years. The Pontifical College Josephinum should be a particularly good venue to showcase the warmth and versatility of ProMusica’s cellists.

This Saturday’s program is quite diverse.  Vivaldi, Mozart, and Debussy lead the way, along with some spice provided by Astor Piazzolla’s Libertango, Scott Joplin’s The Easy Winners, and Freddy Mercury’s classic Bohemian Rhapsody.

I have heard each of the last three pieces in their cello quartet form — they are all dynamite!  Just for fun, see the original version of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen below., and be sure to tune in Friday morning at 9 am.

More information about Saturday’s performance can be found at promusicacolumbus.org.
