Cremaine Booker & Tina Guo - Vivaldi Double Cello

By Amy MacKenzie

The powers of the internet have struck again - this time, bringing together a YouTuber and an international superstar.

ThatCelloGuy, otherwise known as Cremaine Booker, uploads multitrack videos of himself playing the cello, performs with orchestras in the southeast of America and also works as a studio cellist. Tina Guo, from China, is an internationally acclaimed and Grammy-nominated virtuoso acoustic/electric cellist, recording artist, and composer. 

Despite having never met, these two talented musicians have been brought together by the internet and the music community to create a brilliant collaboration video of Vivaldi's Double Cello Concerto. 

On his YouTube channel, Cremaine said:

"It's not everyday that you get to play with a superstar! It was a lot of fun to collaborate with the amazing Tina Guo. Not only is she an AMAZING musician, but she's a great human being!"

And his followers loved the video as much as we did! One of the comments even said:

"It was this video that inspired me to learn cello at age 39! I'm having fun now scaring the cats! Lol, I will get it!"
