The cello looks like the violin and viola but is much larger (around 4 feet long), and has thicker strings than either the violin or viola. You play the cello in a similar manner to the violin and viola, using your left hand to press down on the strings, and your right hand to move the bow or pluck the strings.
The cello is used as a solo musical instrument, as well as in chamber music ensembles, string orchestras, as a member of the string section of symphony orchestras, and some rock bands. It is the second-largest bowed string instrument in the modern symphony orchestra, the double bass being the largest.
The cello is most closely associated with European classical music, and has been described as the closest sounding instrument to the human voice. The instrument is a part of the standard orchestra and is the bass voice of the string quartet, as well as being part of many other chamber groups. A large number of concertos and sonatas have been written for the cello.
Mstislav Rostropovich, a cello virtuoso in the 20th century, was in large part responsible for the growth in the cello repertoire. He commissioned and premiered over 100 new works for cello.
The cello has a rich repertoire of concerti and sonatas. Arguably the most famous and important cello pieces are J.S. Bach’s Six Suites for Cello, Vivaldi wrote 25 cello concerti, Boccherini wrote 12, Haydn wrote at least three.
