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.

    Let me start off by saying that I have absolutely no experience playing cello, so I don't have a lot of knowledge of the instrument to compare it to.PROS:That being said, I think this is an amazing cello for the price. Considering that most "beginner" cellos in a music store start out around $1,000, finding a cello that sounds good at all for $200 is great. It did make a weird squeaky sound when I played the G string while holding down on the fret, but I started making sure I kept the rosin residue wiped off the string, switched to rather than the rosin that came with it, and started using the bow like I was taught in ... 5/5 Brelywi "Brelywi" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Cecilio CCO-Black Student Cello with Soft Case, Stand, Bow, Rosin, Bridge and Extra Set of Strings, Size 4/4 (Full Size) (Electronics) i was so excited to play my new cello! when i got it i tuned it and cleaned it and played everyday. i played almost 5 hours a week and enjoyed it very much. had a good sound for a student cello and it felt decently made. after a while though i noticed on the back of the bridge towards the neck that there was a little crack. didnt think much of it but after 2 days that crack turned into a huge break and the finger board completley came off. i enjoyed play my first cello and it was time to get one that was of higher quality. i would recomend a new studnet to buy it but i dont know how long it will last. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 16, 2012

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!

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

This review is from: Cecilio CCO-100 Student Cello with Hard & Soft Case, Stand, Bow, Rosin, Bridge and Extra Set of Strings, Size 1/2 (Electronics) We bought the Cello for our daughter who was just learning how to play. I was nervous to buy it online, sight unseen, but this was cheaper than renting. At least at the places I looked at. Our daughter's orchestra teacher said it was a good buy and was really impressed that it came with a hard case and a stand. I would buy from them again. It even arrived a day sooner than I had expected it to come! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 2, 2011

    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.
