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
