Matthew Barley

Matthew Barley is a terrific Brit cellist. I love his CD Silver Swan, which I've had for a while. In terms of really fascinating and well-done multi-track recording, he's right up there with David Darling and Maya Beiser.

I just came across his website. Fabulous. One of the best websites of any classical/post-classical performer I've ever seen (only criticism: if you are going to start a blog, then blog). And a great article on improvisation (which is how I found it).

Hi Eric,
Thanks for your comments - much appreciated.
Yes, I've been way too slow off the mark - too busy, Christmas and New Year, Holiday, illness, too busy again.....but now I've mastered it, and I'm off!
Am coming to the States next year for a Protecting Veil in Alabama - can't wait.
Keep up the good work!

Hey Matthew (or do you prefer Matt?)--

Thanks for your note. And I hope you get some more dates in the states--I'd love to hear you in person.
