Morning Mr S and I hope you have not stuffed yourself full of choccy Easter eggs!

I got ND's three German violinists in an email from a German friend a couple of weeks ago. Very talented lasses, as are these two cellists. Great for putting the grandchildren to sleep with this one.... All this frenzied stuff seems to hark back to the original duelling banjos from that hillbilly film some years ago.

For something less frenetic by these two, try this for size:

I've always liked the sound of a cello, Reevers, ever since I came home from the pub after several pints back in the 60s, and ended up watching Ken Russell's film on Elgar.

The scene where he showed the great man's Cello Concerto brought tears to the eyes...

Angus would approve.

That was truly amazing Scrobs, you have quite an eclectic taste in music. I too love Elgar's Cello Concerto, so moving.
Angus of the lakes do you mean Thud. I do miss him such a man of great talent and I so like being surrounded by talented men!

They would be the cello playing Legionnaire deserters at the Palace of Versailles.

The called themselves...
