Fun Fact
A person who performs on this string instrument is called a cellist.

Famed contemporary cellist Yo-Yo Ma plays the Davidov Stradivarius, which was made in Italy in 1712 by the most celebrated luthier of all time, Antonio Stradivari. The instrument was previously owned and played by British cellist Jacqueline du Pré. Her phenomenal career was cut short by multiple sclerosis when she was just 28 years old.

More recently, a classically trained Croatian duo, Stjepan Hauser and Luka Šulić (2Cellos) have introduced the instrument to fans of rock and pop. In 2012, the pair performed an arrangement of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” on the television show Glee.

Other notable cellists of the 20th century include “The Godfather of the Modern Cello” Pablo Casals, Beatrice Harrison, Emanuel Feuermann, Pierre Fournier, Zara Nelsova, János Starker, Paul Tortelier, Mstislav Rostropovich, and Anner Bylsma.

Solo by Yo-Yo Ma

Cellist Yo-Yo Ma and trumpeter Chris Botti perform the hauntingly beautiful love theme from Cinema Paradiso. The music was written by Italian composer Ennio Morricone for the 1988 film. You’ll definitely want to keep a box of tissues handy as you watch this Italian drama written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore.
