Fast Music for Solo cello
Cello wizard Paul Christopher tears into Don Freund’s Fast Music for solo cello — a new recording of 9 minutes of solo cello virtuosity which flies, propels, drives, flashes, chugs, blurs, and rocks. Paul Christopher is Assistant Professor of Music Theory and Low Strings at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana.
