Rachmaninov’s ‘Vocalise’ is dreamy on cello

One of the last songs composed by the genius from Russia, Sergei Rachmaninov is Vocalise and it was originally intended for a soprano voice and a piano. Still, it was a piece that did not have any words but the soloist had to sing the melody to any vowel sound of their choice.

So many people have done arrangements for this magical piece of music and it did for a collaborative of cellos. This is significant because the cello sounds very close to a person’s voice.

This amazing arrangement of Vocalise was played by popular cellist, Brannon Cho. Brannon and his team of cellists were a finalist in the ultimate round of the Queen Elisabeth Competition which held in Belgium.
