A New Video Portfolio!

I’m pleased to announce that the site recently underwent an upgrade and they tell me one of the new features is a brand new video portfolio. This means instead of scrolling through all of the videos on one looooong page, you can now browse through the entire lot or narrow down your search by type of video (solos, chamber, music, full orchestra, etc.). You can also leave comments to each individual video and I promise to do my best to respond to each one that comes in.

You can also view the exclusive videos of my Papal Concert performance of Kol Nidrei, which is only available here and not on YouTube.

    I laughed out loud when I saw your “introduction” : I am a 67-year-old solo cellist et cetera. . . .No you’re not! You’re Lynn Harrell! . . . I hope you don’t mind my bringing up the olden times, but back when I spent most of my disposable income on live music of the New York City variety, I was sometimes less than pleased that my girlfriend wanted to go to a particular performance because Lynn Harrell was going to be featured. “How does he manage to keep all that blond hair from getting all bollixed up in the cat-gut and horse-hair?” sez I and other snarky things. Though in fact I always wanted to hear your concerts. I love the cello. It doesn’t even need to be played particularly well, but of course if you’re in New York you’re going to hear it played very well indeed whether you like it or not. You and Sharon Robinson and that fella in the Trio and that French fella who was already old [never heard Casals live though] and “Slava” down in Washington, I actually got to meet him a little . . . —–
    I came upon your website only ’cause I wanted to hear SOME movement of the Rachmaninoff. I’ve listened to the First. You seem to be having a great big laugh at how AWFUL this is for the poor piano-player. Come on, let’s face it: As a “CELLO piece”, it’s fairly easy, no?
    I’m so pleased that the further movements are available on you site. I am not rich enough to donate to your site. I wish I were. Sometime around May or June I might be able to donate a little bit, a hundred or so, maybe. Meantime, thank you for this site. You are not a 67-year-old solo cellist. You are Lynn Harrell —- the Robert Redford of classical musicians, as me girlfriend used to say.

    Oh Gosh, That’s nice. My hair DID get caught sometimes HaHa. Rach sonata cello part: Not much technical difficulty, mostly sound and color and power -stamina problems…

    This may not be the right place on your site to ask but I am not very good at finding my way round these things…I was at the masterclass you gave in Wellington and very much enjoyed it. I was sitting quite far back and was aware at one point that you were demonstrating your end pin holder ’tile’ but I didn’t hear the story of how you came upon it/designed it. I want one!!! What is it made of? Does it have a non slip surface on the base or is its sheer weight enough to stop it sliding?
    Thanks, Jane.

      The marble tile is made by the maker of my cello (2008) Chrisopher Dungey in Pocatello, Idaho. It is his invention and he soon will be selling them on line. Christopherdungey.com
      It does have a non slip base attached.

    I understand from Mr. Dungey that the tile is not quite ready for shipment. Write to him at : Christopherdungey.com Lynn Harrell
