The instrument we know today developed from the "bass violin" and came into general use in the 17th century. Through her research of performers and teachers, from Boccherini and Romberg to Casala and Jacqueline du Pre, author Margaret Campbell presents a rich picture of traditions handed down the generations and developed internationally, and recreates the magic of the greatest cellists in history.

Campbell ( The Great Violinists ) summarizes the careers and accomplishments of more than 175 cellists who have excelled as performers and teachers from the days of the earliest virtuosos in the 17th century to modern times. After a cursory description of the development of the instrument itself, she discusses early cellists in chapters arranged according to country. Outstanding cellists of more recent years are discussed at greater length, with the longest passages given to a few of the best known, including Casals, Piatigorsky, Rostropovich and du Pre. The book reads for the most part as a dry catalogue of facts, enlivened by some amusing anecdotes but written in an uninspired style and badly in need of editing. Photographs.
