About Gary Hoffman's Cello class on the Romance

Cello class by Gary Hoffman | Romance

"“Can I hear the breath? Just breathe. It's like when you recharge your phone and you get the percentage. That was like twenty-three percent breath. I want a hundred.""
This fragment can serve as an example of the level of intensity with which the master works in this class."

"""With tremendous desire and hope in your sound which basically translates into less pressure, more speed, and more active vibrato. That is a completely technical approach which I don't like, as you know. But since I've been asked to do it, I just did."" 
In a particularly inspiring class, the master works in detail on many issues specific to the instrument and this piece by Gabriel Fauré. He focuses a lot on vibrato, shifts, intonation, crossing strings, direction of the phrases, etc.
The intention of the master is making sure that the student knows the piece enough to be able to express himself, and to be able to plan the phrases, breaths, use of the bow and all these resources, in a more intelligent and practical way.
“You're going somewhere, but not knowing where!"" the master says, and in order to solve these problems, “you have to be your own motivator."""

What we learn in this Cello Master class

- To avoid being predictable
- To feel the pleasure of playing
- The expression must work with the bow.
- Not because vibrating makes a note more important, but generally, if one is vibrating,
then suddenly those notes are invariable. It sends that message.
- Possibility of vibrating in the arm.

-

The Romance in A major, for cello and piano, Op. 69, was written in 1894, originally intended, it seems, for cello and organ and showing some trace of its origins in spite of the obvious modification to the keyboard accompaniment.
"In a thank you note to Countess Elisabeth Greffuhle for a stay at her chateau in late October 1889, Fauré confided that he had been searching for a musical theme. “I was looking for a really piercing musical phrase...it was the air I inhaled in your park that brought it to me...” This phrase can be heard in the opening cello melody of this piece."
