fantasia in a minor

At this year's Oxford Music Festival, I played part of the Fantasia in A minor by Telemann, and I can (sort of) play the rest as well, so I'll tick this one off. It's been a very steep learning curve, as the notes leaping around all over the place made absolutely no sense at all at first glance, and I needed the help of my teacher to find the structures in the music (and to know when to breathe).

Next up is a Romantic composition that is also part of the cello canon and was written for an instrument that has since become extinct.



I had started working on the Telemann with a free score from the internet, but then discovered this lovely old edition at an Oxfam shop.
