New Cello Lesson Song, This is the most beautiful cello song!
I started this song in cello lessons. Here are 4 versions on Youtube. Even if you do not play cello, you will love the song.

This is one of my news songs for my cello lessons. I am in love with this song. It is from Suzuki Book 4. It is, Chanson Triste, by Tchaikovsky. It translates to Sad Song. It is absolutely lovely.

Chanson Triste, Cellopedia

I love watching Cellopedia. He is connected with Planet Cello, I think. He is exquisite with what he plays. He does the black background and dark clothing so students can concentrate on what he is doing.

There is another YouTube instructor that does all the Suzuki songs, Laszlo Mezlo

Chanson Triste, Prof Laszlo Mezo

He usually does a good job, but he has no feeling for this song. It is too bright and cheerful. It may be because he does the song over and over, with piano accompaniment, with metronome, tempo slowed, etc. It would make for a shorted video length with his speed of this song, but he plays it too “cheery”. The linked version is wonderful.

Here is Chanson Triste being played by Rachel Xu. I included her in the Cello Instruction Index I created. You can tell her cello is brighter than Cellopedia, but she still has enormous feeling. It was interesting to me to note this.

Chanson Triste, Rachel Xu

Here is Chanson Triste by a teenage student, with piano accompaniment. He does a beautiful job, also.

Chanson Triste, Teenage Student

I still am not able to do vibrato enough to put it into a song. This is one song that I will absolutely continue to work on when we are done with it in lessons. I want to get this song smooth, full of feeling and, eventually, with vibrato.

Personally, I like the simplicity of the song without piano accompaniment.

It is a nice piece - and all of them well played.  Thanks for sharing those!

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG
