Welcome to another livestream Groupmuse featuring solo cello works and a duet with my wife Chelsea on oboe! I'm excited to bring you one of my favorite works, Kodaly's fantastic Sonata for Solo Cello. This piece transforms the cello and takes the listener to another land, thanks to Kodaly's influence of Hungarian and Romanian folk music.
