There’s something about the cello. Whether I’m rocking out to a mash-up of pop tunes played by piano/cello duo The Piano Guys or listening in awe of Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s emotional performance of Elgar’s cello concerto, I truly love listening to the cello play just about anything.
In today’s episode, we’ll learn a bit about the anatomy of the cello, what it means to play a solo, and listen to two very famous pieces of cello music. Be sure to also download this episode’s listening calendar for a chance to hear cello tunes from all sorts of different genres.
Let’s dive in!
