ON THIS CELLO DAY
This is a feature on offer from Johnstone-Music which is virtually unique in the cello world.
More than 1500 entries from the world of the cello – every day of the year is represented ….look out for your birthday and see what happened! With special emphasis on birth dates of cellists and first performances of important works.More suggestions of interest always welcomed!
— cellists can qualify from any period, but we do not include any event (birth, first performance etc.) after the year 1999, in order to maintain a certain historical perspective!– we include births but NOT deaths…..
— we are especially interested in major professional influences – cellists who are/were orchestral principal cellists, artists with highly publicized and sought after soloist careers, well-established and respected chamber music artists, and cello professors in some of the major musical educational centres recognized around the world.
— non-classical cellists can be included, if truly having a proven concert experience and fame in other genres.
