Histories of the cello

21, 28 January, and 4, 11 February 2017
Saturday Concerts:


Throughout its history, the violoncello has endeavoured to find its own voice in the group of modern instruments. The cello emerged within the violin family (not from the viola da gamba, as its appearance would lead us to believe) and during the Baroque it played a central role as a basso continuo, providing harmonic support to the music. Its early emancipation as a soloist facilitated its integration, initially in noble salons and later in concert halls, until the modern exploration of timbral and idiomatic resources. This is the history that will be told in this series.
