Fine cellos for sale: German, French and Italian cellos
The cello (violoncello) is considered the stringed instrument that most closely resembles the male human voice. Far more than a mere “little bass”, as its name suggests, the cello as being the deepest voice in the violin family has a musical radius that extend from solo performance to various ensemble combinations. Indeed does the cello tone have a unique, singing character which especially antique cellos project with huge volume, an incomparable range of nearly five octaves and an extravagant wealth of registers. German cellos have a rich, warm tenor sound while Italian cellos sing with bright radiance. From baroque music to jazz and even to popular music, there is hardly a genre that is not played with an old cello. Constructing a versatile instrument as the violoncello may be described with little exaggeration as the crowning achievement of the luthiers’ art. Discerning musicians of all kinds select their German, French or Italian cello with an individual profile at Corilon.
