Schumann concerto video

Here it is (split in two to fit YouTube's length requirements):

First movement:

The rest:

People have generally been very kind about this performance. I am probably too close to it right now to be objective, but what I miss is clear expressiveness. What was in my mind didn't come through very well. But it's respectable, I think, and certainly technically clean, which is worth a lot with this piece.

This really came together. I knew you would be fabulous but based on the rehearsal recording you posted I wasn't expecting much from the orchestra.

You are a cello rock star. Congratulations on a terrific performance.
