Bach’s soprano cantatas
Download free cello piccolo notes.
My friend Ute, who has a beautiful voice, recently asked me for a few parts from Bach’s cantatas so we could later play together. So I put together some links and thought they could be useful.
Below are the links to downloadable free parts on the IMSLP website. Consider signing up for a subscription. It will save you time and support the free share of music notes. You could also download the IMSLP app. It’s practical to keep your parts in order and take notes on them.

Stay tuned for the missing article because this cantata has an intriguing history!
Updates from our workshop
This week we are taking a few days off in London!
Last weekend we received the visit of Alberto Vitolo, a violinist and violist originally from Neaples, now based in Rome. He is a performer and teacher, and his main passion is digging into libraries (like the one of the Naples’ Conservatory) to find new repertoire, new music that has never been heard in recent times. He also discovered a concert attributed to Mozart!
Despite being a violinist, he lately was fascinated by lower-range instruments. When he tried the Violoncello da Spalla, he immediately understood not only the vastness of the repertoire that he could study with it but also how enjoyable and effective would be leading his orchestra with it!
I particularly like the pic below because it catches the moment he visualises his future playing it… and his wife's expression behind him!
Thank you Alberto for coming to us and taking Alessandro’s cello da Spalla as your mate for your future adventures!
