I am grateful for my reader’s suggestions of what to listen to and watch. Those recommendations vary from lighthearted to deathly serious and everything in between. Thank you.

Once in a while I am presented with a true treasure, as when my friend Alon Sagee insisted I watch a rendition of Maurice Ravel’s classic, Bolero as played on the cello.

I found myself gobsmacked.

Go here and watch one of the more amazing feats of musical innovations.

Truly, these five Viennese men + one woman cellists, collectively known as the Viennese Cello Ensemble 5 + 1 are extraordinary.

Imagine how much practice time it must have taken to pull this off with such precision and flair.
