Philip’s recitalFebruary 9, 2007 6:13 pm music
On Wednesday I went to the university to hear a cello recital by Philip von Mahltzahn, who was a friend of mine back in high school when we played in a string trio together. It was a cool recital, with a Boccherini sonata, George Crumb sonata, sonata by György Ligeti, Astor Piazzolla’s Le Grand Tango, and what cellist could do a recital without a Bach suite.. so Philip did the third one. It was cool to meet him again after the recital and say “hi”. Philip plays in the Degas Quartet now. I hope I get a chance to hear them sometime.
