AVE MARIA....BACH/GOUNOD...SOLO CELLO
This Ave Maria is a musical collaboration of two composers...the accompaniment part...which is not present here...was written as...Prelude in C Major by J.S. Bach from his published work..The Well Tempered Clavier..in 1722.....and 130 years later, Charles Gounod wrote the melody portion...which you are hearing here....there is some mystery involved with this music and its lyrics as to who else was involved in the composing of the melody and lyrics..but I will not go into that here....the only important fact is that it is a beautiful work...and it was a joy for me to play....there were many many hours spent to bring this music up to recording snuff and I loved every one of them:-)
It is a goal of mine to learn/play the accompaniment part and record this music in full....I will also explore that part being played as harp sounds which my piano will make....hopefully I can make this happen later in the year :-)
I also love the Ave Maria by Schubert...I play it too and it would be hard to pick which is my favorite...if you wish to hear the Schubert....just click HERE..
Thank you for listening to my music...Please check out the other areas of my site and please stop by anytime:-)
