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: 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: 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

Now this cello is really eating my wallet because of all the repairs that were needed. The fine tuners didn't work, the bridge was too high, and something was wrong with the fingerboard.

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

    Fabulous Instrument

    I just got this instrument about 20 minutes before the UPS was going to close which was nice but anyways, just utterly fabulous instrument, what you get is all you need. No need for super sensitive strings or anything and the bow is more than good enough for this packaged price. I took the instrument out and UNLIKE OTHERS used my brain and wondered why would they not set the bridge? hmmm MAYBE TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO THE AMAZING INSTRUMENT. So i set the bridge pretty easily with help from my mom since i didn't feel comfortable tightening the strings on the finger board and just slipped the bridge in the center the the f-holes, you'll notice little notches in the center on the f-holes and just put the bridge their but remember to place it a bit closer to the soundpost which is on the left side of the instrument and also tilt the bridge a bit backwards so when you tighten the strings it doesn't bend the bridge. So then i rosined the bow for about 20 minutes and tried the instrument. Pure... 4/5 A. Nekic "Death is only an extension of life" (Eastlake, OH) - See all my reviews, December 29, 2009

    Have it inspected immediately

    I bought this last year and didn't get a chance to really try it out for a couple of months later because I was moving - I really should have returned it and spent the money for a decent cello.The price is good considering all that is comes with. You won't find a better package deal.However, if you are not familiar with the cello, have someone who is familiar test it and look it over up and down - they should play it and inspect the parts.The bridge it came with was not the right size, so I had to pay $150 to get a proper one. The nut was also not properly sized so I had to pay another $50 to have it fixed. The sound also leaves something to be desired. The finishing is a sloppy if you look closely and a section started cracking off on one side after 3 months of use.The bow is alright. The hard case it comes with is very fragile and the straps broke and the lining was coming undone within weeks. The wheels are poorly placed so it wobbles... 2/5 K.

    Cello is nice but bow is warped

    I have played the violin for more than 20 years and all that time yearned to play the cello, as well, but I didn't want to spend $1000 to buy one, so this package deal of cello plus hard and soft cases, bow, extra strings, and rosin was difficult to pass by. I am largely happy with the purchase.The cello sounds decent...it sounds like a cello...the only problem being that the bow was badly warped to the side and the frog structure isn't securely attached, although I can use it. Since the bow is cheap, I'm not too surprised that the wood could have warped en route from China. I asked a local violin/cello repair person how much it might cost to fix the bow, if it were possible, and he said probably $200, so doing that would be pointless! Also, since the cello seems to be in good condition I didn't want to return the whole package in case the next cello wasn't as good! So, I'm keeping the bow and plan to purchase another one by a different manufacturer later... 4/5 Leia - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

I have an older cello that I have owned since new. these pegs are manufactured in sizes 12 mm to 15 mm. The peg holes on mine run from 12 mm to 13.1 mm and I should have ordered 14 mm to cover the range. you will need to remove your pegs and use an inside caliper to measure size of the hole at it's inlet. If it is 12 mm or less then this is a very good price. if larger than 12mm you need to purchase where you have a choice in sizes 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 12, 2014

    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

El Greco Annunciation Virgin Mary Postcards

catholic painting, annunciation, el greco, angel
El Greco Annunciation. Oil painting on canvas from 1598. El Greco devoted much of his career to religious themes, his Annunciation is one of the most arresting and dramatic. The angel Gabriel announces to the Virgin Mary that she has been chosen by God amongst women as a band of angels overhead plays flute, cello, harp and harpsichord. A pure white dove surrounded by yellow light burst through the clouds in the center of the painting providing the visual focal point of the scene. The silky use of green, red, blue and black provides the painting with a lovely dreamlike quality. A great gift for fans of El Greco, the Virgin Mary, angels, and catholic art.
