Position Pieces for Cello

Creator: Rick Mooney | Music - 2004-11

Introduction This book deals with Fifth, Sixth and Seventh positions on the cello. Coinci- dentally, because of the range of the notes commonly used in those positions, there is a lot of practice reading tenor clef.

Publisher: Alfred Pub Co

About this book
Position Pieces for Cello, Book 2 fills the pedagogical gap between the first book of Position Pieces and the two Thumb Position for Cello books in that it covers the fifth, sixth, and seventh positions. Position Pieces for Cello, Book 2 systematically introduces ways to find the correct location of each position and also to understand the various finger patterns required. As with Mr. Mooney's other books, this is accomplished in an enjoyable and creative manner through the use of cello duets. With titles like "Surfing Cellos," "Jumping Flea," and "The Happy Certified Public Accountant," these pieces are really fun for students to play! This book will prove to be an indispensable tool for intermediate level cello students.

The Baroque Cello Revival, An Oral History

Creator: Paul R. Laird | 2004-09-01

Later Pleeth commissioned Rubio to copy William Pleeth's 1732 cello from Stradivari's workshop. Pleeth used the copy to record works by Vivaldi and other composers, including in a joint release with Anner Bylsma.

Publisher: Scarecrow Pr

About this book
This resource considers the Baroque cello's revival as part of the period instrument movement from the viewpoints of over forty cellists from three generations and four luthiers who have worked on period cellos. What emerges is a nuanced and detailed picture of the cello in the past and present and the varied instruments now played under the label "Baroque cello." Period instruments played with appropriate techniques have become a major presence in classical music in recent decades. For the cello, which changed substantially between the end of the sixteenth and early eighteenth centuries, it is challenging to describe specific traits for certain time periods, let alone how it was played in those periods. By chronicling the searches of over forty top cellists in England, Europe, and North America, the author goes far in revealing the great variety of forms that exist. This is the first study in which the revival of a single period instrument has been considered in such qualified detail and will be of great interest to musicologists, luthiers, and anyone interested in string history.

Cello story

Creator: Dimitry Markevitch, Florence Seder | Music - 1984-12

Markevitch played some Ukranian melodies for Servais, who later used them in his Variations for cello. In Leipzig in 1844, Servais took part in a concert that included the Beethoven Trio opus 97, with the famous teacher Ferdinand David ...

Publisher: Alfred Music Publishing

About this book
Translated from the French by Florence W. Seder, Dimitry Markevitch concludes his preface, or Prelude as he calls it: "History, fact and personal anecdote blend here to provide a complete story of the instrument. May this book entertain you, help you to know the cello to the fullest, and lead you to love it as I do." Reading the book confirms that he has amply accomplished his aims. His qualifications for doing so are of the highest. Markevitch is a performer of considerable note and a teacher at both the Ecole Normale de Musique and Conservatoire Serge Rachmaninoff in Paris. He also has a keen interest in musicology and has edited many works for publication. The book is divided into three parts: "The Instrument," tracing the history of the cello and cello bow from earliest times, "The Performers," anecdotes of historical cellists plus a long section on Markevitch's friend Piatigorsky, and "Great Moments for the Cello," development of cello repertoire.

This review is from: Crescent 4/4 Beginner Cello Starter Kit - Natural Wood Color (Bag, Bow, Accessories Included) (Electronics) I'm a beginning cellist, so I needed a cheap starter student cello! Let me tell you-I did extremely extensive research before purchasing one, this is the lowest price out there! Arrived quickly and well packaged! No major issues, there are a few spots that the craftsmanship could be better, but honestly for the price I paid, I can't complain! If you're a beginner this is your best bet! :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 29, 2013

This review is from: Crescent 4/4 Beginner Cello Starter Kit - Natural Wood Color (Bag, Bow, Accessories Included) (Electronics) I was very excited to get this peace; however some things I needed to upgrade on them.1) The pegs - they wouldn't stay in their position, so I constantly had to re-tune2) The strings - after about 9 months I had to replace the strings because they were wearing out.3) The bridge - the bridge was a bit too flat in the sense that I ended doing more double stops than I cared to (since I am a beginner); however I will say for fiddle it was great!Once I got those items fixed, oh and upgraded my bow it is a wonderful and beautiful instrument. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 9, 2014

    Beautiful Cello--bad strings

    0 2/5 Charmaine Mankey (Sunny Southern California) - See all my reviews, June 5, 2010

    Be prepared to spend a lot to make the cello playable.

    When I was quoted $1,000 locally at two stores for a cello just to begin lessons, I thought I could do better online. I found a cello through Crystal Cello. With any cello you buy, you're going to pay $80-$125 extra for set-up charges (tuning and setting the sound peg inside; installing the bridge), but I had to spend more like $480: $80 - Set-up; $400 - Within a month, I started having trouble, and the cello was in the shop repeatedly as we made adjustments and repairs. Here's all that went wrong: the fingerboard (just black-painted wood, not ebony) warped up into the strings and made the cello unplayable and had to be replaced along with the nut; the post at the bottom had to be loosened so it would slide out of the cello. No complaints about their service or shipping, but the reality is I got the cello and its case for about $225, but now I'm into it for $700. I've still saved money over the locally quoted price, but it has been frustrating having the cello in and out of the... 2/5 JustAThought - See all my reviews This review is from: Crystalcello MC100 Full Size 4/4 Cello with Carrying Bag + Bow + Accessories (Electronics) When I was quoted $1,000 locally at two stores for a cello just to begin lessons, I thought I could do better online.

    Prepared to spend some $$ fixing it up

    The cello looks and sound okey. However, keep in mind that it is assembled by cheap labor and you need to spend extra fixing it up to make it more playable.Problems with the one I got and the cost to fix it up.1) Spacing between strings at the nut is to narrow. The span for four strings only measured at 19mm, while it should be at 23mm~24mm. ($35)2) Finger board angle is way too low. ($135, I didn't go for it)3) String spacing on bridge is not even. ($29)4) Hole for endpin too large, so endpin tilted forward when strings were tighten. ($20)5) Sound post is too short, so it ended up got placed at the wrong place. ($40)6) Strings sound bad, especially D and A strings. ($25)7) Bow is too soft.You will definitely see most or more small problems like these. After paying for the repairs, you can still get a playable cello for ~$350. But if you can afford putting down an extra $500, you can get a higher quality... 3/5 J.

    Grace 4/4 cello

    I received this cello on the date it was expected. I was surprised to see if as It was huge! very lightweight but none the less the box was as tall as I am. The package was beaten up a little, I'm sure from the delivery men and how it's handled during the shipping process. Fragile should have been written on the side.The package included the cello, bow, case, stand two sets of string and rosin, and the music stand. I already had a stand so the one that came with it isn't much use to me. However, I LOVE the music stand. It is so much better than the one I had. AS for the cello, it was inside the case when it came with the string kind of attached, but not fully as the bridge was not attached as well. For the best, as it would have gotten broken during shipping. Not a big deal as I had someone set it up for me. I did notice that there is a small crack or separation between the top half and the body, but it's more cosmetic I think than anything. The bow is a fair bow.

    Great for a beginner

    This actually arrived about 5 days earlier than expected. It came in a big box with plenty of Styrofoam to keep it from moving around and packing strips as well as taped tightly shut. There were set up instructions as well as a link to a set up video to watch. All the promised items were there, the rosin, music stand, cello stand, strings, pitch pipe, case, bow and bag. It looks pretty good for the price. I imagine a long time player might snub their nose at this but for someone like myself who is on a budget, wants to get a start and intends to save up for a better one once I improve it's the perfect instrument to start with.What to expect: A large box with shipping tape and straps about 5 1/2 feet long and about 1 foot width by 1/2 or so width. You'll need scissors and a blade to get inside. Once opened there are Styrofoam shapes fitted around the Cello which is in it's case. The Music stand is in it's own separate case.

    A Good Cello for the Price

    0 5/5 Andy (New Hampshire) - See all my reviews This review is from: Cremona SC-175 Premier Student Cello, Full-Size (Electronics), February 25, 2011

    good quality instrument

    0 4/5 r farnum (NY, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Cremona SC-175 Premier Student Cello, Full-Size (Electronics) I own this product and am happy with my purchase. The instrument has a great sound, once you change the strings. That is a must I would say, but that is true of most orchestral string instruments purchased in these types of outfits. The case it comes with is a much higher quality than you would expect for an instrument this price, I am very happy with it.The one issue I had was with the bow - I only recently started to play the cello but have been playing viola for more than 25 years so am experienced with different types of bows. I can honestly say that the bow that came with this instrument was one of the worst I have ever used. I had a much less expensive cello outfit that came with a better bow than this. So, while I would certainly recommend this product to others because of the quality of instrument and case for the price, I would add the disclaimer that you should definitely be prepared to buy a better bow. I upgraded and it made a huge difference. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 10, 2013

    I would say this cello is excellent!

    I bought this cello, which was used and refurbished, 2 years ago on ebay. I knew it did not have a very good review on Amazon. After I received it, I was surprised how good it sounded, and was very easy to play. That time I was a super novice player and could not tell if the cello was good or not. Now after playing cello for 2 years and learning more, and trying out different cellos, I realized that this cello is an excellent cello. I have never played expensive cellos that advanced and professional players would use, but for under 1,000 dollar student cellos, this is an excellent choice. I wanted to buy 3/4 size of this same cello for my 11 year old daughter, who has been taking a private lesson for a year, but I could not find an used cello. Since I did not want to buy a brand new cello, I went for different brands; one made in China and one old German made. The German cello sounded so good, and the teacher loved that cello. After my daughter played it solo in one recital... 5/5 P. Rigby - See all my reviews, February 13, 2014
