Italian cellist Giovanni Solima plays his original composition 'Daydream' in this video. The effects are pretty well done a suit the music. It comes in two parts.

Part 1

Part 2

Hmmm. Peter, it looks like he could almost play Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 all by himself.

I could do without the fx, but the music was beautiful!

Calling JohnK: Where can I get a cd with this piece?

I agree, Craig. I'd like to find a worthy cd, too.

JohnK, we demand answers!!

Craig and Sean, answer demanded and delivered: checking the Sollima discography , it appears that neither of his compositions, i.e. "Terra Aria" and "Concerto Rotondo", which are on the "Daydream" music video, have been recorded commercially. Listening to some brief samples on Amazon, there didn't seem to be much of interest. So, there's plenty of nice cello music available, but nothing relating to this.

Incidentally, my reference to the Bachianas in the reply to Peter was because the accompaniment there is by eight cellos(aka celli). This work is included in the most beautiful vocal recording that I've ever heard, the Moffo/ Stokowski collection.

Thanks JohnK. The Moffo/Stokowski collection sounds wonderful, at least the little snippets I heard from Amazon. I have yet to own an "opera" type cd (I don't know what the proper terminology is)--or vocal recording--but I find it immensely pleasing.

Yeah, the Amazon reviews there are certainly right on target. This is an absolutely essential disc that I've given several times as presents. It's only easily available now by way of the Arkiv reissue, which unfortunately doesn't include Stokowski's rather interesting notes.

{Ever seen a six-armed cellist?}

No, but give him my phone number, he seems very skilled with his hands. All 6 (or did I see 8?) of them.

Do you think he has six trouser snakes?

That would be three too many. One trouser snake for each pair of hands.
