Life lessons Natalie Clein

The British cellist recallsther time studying withtheinrich Schiff in Vienna, and the authors and recordings that still inspirether today

love the fact that we can immediately recognise the diferent voices of the string playing masters of the early 20th century when wethear them on recordings. Each player had his orther unique voice on their instrument as diferent as every human voice. I want my students to develop unique voices too. It would be boring for them, as well as for me, if they all sounded the same, and the last thing I want is tothelp produce a ‘commodity’ – so I try tothelp them play in a way that relects who they are and how they emotionally react to a score, as well as how to understand it intellectually. Both of those aspects are things I try to develop constantly as a player too.
