Notes from Home: Chas Helge

What does a cellist do when they're self-quarantined at home with just their cat for company? In Chas Helge's case, he's making recordings featuring five versions of himself.

In this edition of Notes from Home, Helge explains how he made a recording featuring his own five-cello arrangement of Mozart's "Queen of the Night" aria in which he plays all five parts.
