This is a compact, composite and authoritative survey of the history and development of the cello and its repertory since the origins of the instrument. The volume comprises thirteen essays, written by a team of nine distinguished scholars and performers, and is intended to develop the cello's historical perspective in breadth and from every relevant angle, offering as comprehensive a coverage as possible. It focuses in particular on four principal areas: the instrument's structure, development and fundamental acoustical principles; the careers of the most distinguished cellists since the baroque era; the cello repertory (including chapters devoted to the concerto, the sonata, other solo repertory, and ensemble music); and its technique, teaching methods and relevant aspects of historical and performance practice. It is the most comprehensive book ever to be published about the instrument and provides essential information for performers, students and teachers.

This innovative study of nineteenth-century cellists and cello playing shows how simple concepts of posture, technique and expression changed over time, while acknowledging that many different practices co-existed. By placing an awareness of this diversity at the centre of an historical narrative, George Kennaway has produced a unique cultural history of performance practices. In addition to drawing upon an unusually wide range of source materials - from instructional methods to poetry, novels and film - Kennaway acknowledges the instability and ambiguity of the data that supports historically informed performance. By examining nineteenth-century assumptions about the very nature of the cello itself, he demonstrates new ways of thinking about historical performance today. Kennaway’s treatment of tone quality and projection, and of posture, bow-strokes and fingering, is informed by his practical insights as a professional cellist and teacher. Vibrato and portamento are examined in the context of an increasing divergence between theory and practice, as seen in printed sources and heard in early cello recordings. Kennaway also explores differing nineteenth-century views of the cello’s gendered identity and the relevance of these cultural tropes to contemporary performance. By accepting the diversity and ambiguity of nineteenth-century sources, and by resisting oversimplified solutions, Kennaway has produced a nuanced performing history that will challenge and engage musicologists and performers alike.

Excerpt from Violin Vibrato: Its Mastery and Artistic Uses; Practical Suggestions for Correct Technical Development and Good Violin Tone Production It is only in recent years that the problems of violin technic have been given more careful consideration than was formerly thought necessary. It is true that directions for overcoming certain technical difficulties may be found in the many schools of violin playing, but they rarely touch the essence of the difficulty, and usually neglect entirely to analyze and separate a difficult passage into its simplest forms. The number of works which treat only of violin technic is small in comparison to the great number of theoretical works at the disposal of the pianist. This may, in part, be due to the more difficult and complicated movements necessarily connected with the playing of the violin, the holding and supporting of which alone result in complications of the technical apparatus which do not exist in the case of the piano or 'cello. The playing of either of these instruments permits of a hanging position of the arms, and the movements of playing do not make such great demands upon the strength of the player. Although the movements of playing the piano are comparatively simple, they are considered of special importance. In fact, they form the basis of the method of a master. In playing the violin, the problems of technic are made more complicated by the fact that each arm performs a different function. Naturally, a large number of treatises give attention to the problems of bowing and of the left hand. It is strange that one function of the left hand, and the most important one, has rarely been mentioned. In the following, I wish to call attention to a point which is of the greatest importance to the whole technical apparatus employed in playing the violin. I will say at once, however, that we are concerned here with a purely technical problem, and not with the interpretive side of playing, nor with the declamation of an art work. We will discuss here only those functions and conditions which enable us to express what we feel through the medium of beautiful tone. It is time that we finally determine what belongs to the spiritual side of music, and what, in contrast thereto, belongs alone to the technic of playing.

Mastery for Strings presents a unique, efficient methodology for developing high levels of proficiency in string players in both classroom and private studio settings. Cornerstones of the Mastery for Strings approach are: a curriculum design for large heterogeneous string classes, technical skills organized in small, sequential steps, "how-to" pages with clear goals, explicit instructions, and recognizable evaluation criteria for each technical skill, a plan for developing problem-solving strategies and self-evaluation skills, music theory (fingerboard geography) taught without reference to the piano keyboard.

The year was 1950. Khem Rao was just another child born in a remote farming village in Bihar. His life’s script was expected to be no different to anyone else born under the same circumstances. However, destiny had other plans. This book charts the course of his extraordinary life and his prodigious music talent. This is a story of hardship. Of trial and tribulations. Of the hand of fate. Of hope and achievement. Of love and heartbreak. His life exemplifies that it matters little from where you start, but where you finish.

Written for the cellist looking for an approach that demystifies cello playing, Cello, Bow and You is an innovative text in the field of string pedagogy written by a 40+ year veteran of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and certified teacher of the Alexander Technique. Author Evangeline Benedetti has a unique voice and approach, and invites cellists of all levels to explore, make discoveries and organically internalize technique. Benedetti's approach compliments the work that students do with their teachers by encouraging them to be more aware of themselves and responsive to internal and external guidance. Cello, Bow and You allows students and professionals access to Benedetti's vast performance and teaching experience. She has pioneered an approach to playing that is a synthesis of the cellist's musical thought, the knowledge of the dynamic properties of the instrument and bow, and the ability to move effectively according to the mechanics of the human body. The synergy of these elements leads to physically healthy playing and frees players to be musically expressive. Written in engaging, informal prose, the book is a must-read for cellists and cello teachers - beginning, intermediate, or professional.

Annotation: The Index is published in two physical volumes and sold as a set for $250.00. As America's geography and societal demands expanded, the topics in The Etude magazine (first published in 1883) took on such important issues as women in music; immigration; transportation; Native American and African American composers and their music; World War I and II; public schools; new technologies (sound recordings, radio, and television); and modern music (jazz, gospel, blues, early 20th century composers) in addition to regular book reviews, teaching advice, interviews, biographies, and advertisements. Though a valued source particularly for private music teachers, with the de-emphasis on the professional elite and the decline in salon music, the magazine ceased publication in 1957. This Index to the articles in The Etude serves as a companion to E. Douglas Bomberger's 2004 publication on the music in The Etude. Published a little over fifty years after the final issue reached the public, this Index chronicles vocal and instrumental technique, composer biographies, position openings, department store orchestras, the design of a successful music studio, how to play an accordion, recital programs in music schools, and much more. The Index is a valuable tool for research, particularly in the music culture of American in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. With titles of these articles available, the doors are now open for further research in the years to come.
