Cellist Frans Helmerson on bringing out the separate colour of each string

July 6, 2016

‘I love the specific colour of each string – it’s not always about making the sound as equalised as possible. Each string has a different voice.’

Kronberg Academy professor Frans Helmerson gives a cello masterclass on Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata, recorded at the International Musicians’ Seminar, Prussia Cove. The student is Adam Krzeszowiec.

The full 42-minute video is available to buy as a download or DVD through the Masterclass Media Foundation.
