Cello remains one of the most beloved instruments of professional musicians and music lovers alike. What makes it so? This salon is a conversation about the history and magic capabilities of cello, led by an outstanding cellist and multiinstrumentalist Daniel Hass and a cello student and composer Ulkar Aghayeva. The conversation will be accompanied and illustrated by Daniel’s live performance.

We rarely hear musicians talk about their instruments, how they came to learn them, what it means to master an instrument, and how, exactly, modern instruments differ from those made by old masters, the likes of Amati and Stradivari? In this salon, you are welcome and encouraged to ask these and all other questions about cello. Daniel Hass is a professional cellist who has played the instrument since he was four, and he’s been teaching cello for many years. Ulkar is one of his grateful students, and cello lessons have been for her an infinite source of inspiration and self-discovery.

This event is a part of the Arts and Minds Conversations in New York – Interintellect x Museum Mile series.

This is a members only event. Please sign in to RSVP.
