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.

    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.

    Beautiful and good quality Cello!

    I've been playing the Cello for almost 5 years now, and I finally decided to buy my first Cello. My family doesn't have a lot of money, and Cellos originally cost around $1000, and I just simply couldn't afford it. Luckily, Amazon had the answer. Let me tell you, I was definitely skeptical about buying a cheap Cello from a website. I read articles saying that buying a Cello online was terrible and it would break in a flash. I also found out that you had to put the bridge in yourself, and that was something so terrifying for me because if I broke the bridge (which is, in my opinion, the most important part of the Cello) I would be heartbroken.However, I bought it anyways and a couple weeks later I found a giant box on my doorsteps waiting for me. The hard case fit very snug inside the giant box and it took a while to take out, but the Cello was just beautiful. The fine tuner was wrapped around protective paper and the bridge was located safely inside the little storage area... 5/5 Neely Webster - See all my reviews This review is from: Merano 4/4 Size Cello with Hard Case with Bag and Bow+2 Sets of Strings+Cello Stand+Black Music Stand+Metro Tuner+Mute+Rosin (Electronics) I've been playing the Cello for almost 5 years now, and I finally decided to buy my first Cello.

This review is from: Merano 4/4 Size Cello with Hard Case with Bag and Bow+2 Sets of Strings+Cello Stand+Black Music Stand+Metro Tuner+Mute+Rosin (Electronics) The tailpiece comes on the cello disconnected as well as the bridge, but the cello is beautiful and has a very nice color and shine.I absolutely adore the metronome and stand it comes with.The cases are nice, too; the hard foam-like one has a lock and little key, along with rolling wheels so you don't have to carry it on your back or hold it off the ground.I only saw one extra set of strings, but that works for me; there's a set on the cello itself.The fingerboard, scroll, and pegs are a good quality wood.The bow looked nice, but I haven't really checked it out 100% yet.Overall, I was very satisfied to receive this cello for the price. Recommend it.Seller communication is very good, I got a quick response when I emailed them.I'll keep this updated this week. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 26, 2012

    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.

    Quality

    0 4/5 Daniel Tsukamoto (Watertown, SD) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Crystalcello MC100 Full Size 4/4 Cello with Carrying Bag + Bow + Accessories (Electronics) Overall, I am pleased with my new cello, because it came with strings, end pin protector, cello rosin, cello cover, and French bow. I was surprised I did not find any packaged extra strings. I was also surprised to see that some hair came out from the bow very easily, which almost led me to believe that this bow needed re-hairing. It seems that this instrument can produce a good resonating forward sound, which at times have to control by backing the note dynamics off. I was not able to find a logo indicating where this cello was originally made at. The bridge was slightly too high. Because my original plan was to use the instrument in my church only and not professionally, this full-size instrument works very well with me.
