OK, Sunday I’m a Carbon Knight

One of the Luis and Clark carbon-fiber cello enthusiasts has dubbed we who play the instruments “Carbon Knight.” I wrote yesterday that I was having a hard time deciding which cello to use for Sunday’s Shostakovich 1st Concerto performance. I rehearsed yesterday with the Luis and Clark and decided to stick with it; I didn’t even try the Garavaglia with the orchestra.

Why? Well, the L&C sounded great. I’m very comfortable with it, having performed on it many times. It projects well. And it really would be crazy to try and get comfortable with another cello by Sunday. A new decisiveness: this bodes well!

So for Sunday at least, I’ll be a Carbon Knight.
