Get Your Cello Sonata Here

The cello sonata is wonderful in the hands of a master. For me, I always look to two Brahms cello sonatas: Sonata No. 1 in E minor (Opus 38) and Sonata No. 2 in F major (Opus 99). There’s so much inspiration there and I would highly suggest some intense listening in order to appreciate the cello’s craftsmanship.

The instruments four strings are tuned as such: C, G, a, and d. Notice that I used upper case (capitals) for the first two letters that describe the tuning. The capitals indicate that the C and G are two octaves and a perfect eleventh (an octave and a perfect fourth) below middle C respectively.

Andrea Amati was one of the early makers of this instrument way back in the sixteenth century. Big improvements came to this instrument in the eighteenth century including a higher bridge, and a more slender and lengthy neck.

One of the giants in the cello performing world was the one and only Mstislav Rostropovich. Yo-Yo Ma is, of course, another legend.
