“Hi, my name is Leslie.
The cello is not an easy instrument.
I’ll probably never be able to perform the andante in Brahms Opus 60, but I own the music and I’m practicing my scales.
I’ll probably play the cello till the day I die.
“My mother had introduced me to the Gramercy Trio. I heard them play Brahms C-Minor-Opus 60. It was a fine Quartet. They were very good musicians and when they got to the andante movement that began with a cello solo Ilost it.
I’ve never heard anything like this in my life and I’ve become obsessed with the andante in Opus 60 – It lives on the wall of my kitchen where I look at it everyday and wake up in the middle of the night thinking about it.”
