Chamber Sonata in C, No. 20 for Cello and Piano by Handel
Last Friday my cellist friend Abraham and myself were invited to perform a short recital for a group of relatives in town for the Llagas reunion that took place in Foster City over the weekend. We played at the Veloro residence in Palo Alto to a group of twenty or so. At this point into the recital, Abraham had already been adopted as a member of the clan! Abraham played the cello in the Baroque style: using no endpin, he supported his cello with his calves. He also used a Baroque style bow. I played Susan Veloro’s new Yamaha Clavinova set to the Harpsichord setting. Here’s the entire four movements for your listening pleasure!
