Cello history

The cello has the same structure as the violin, but much larger. They play the cello while sitting, placing it in front of them and resting it on the floor with a special leg with a spike (spire).
History remembered two masters, especially those who were famous for producing cellos. This is Gasparo da Salo and Paolo Magini.

Today, performance has become an entertaining and completely harmless genre. Moreover, while in Russia in most of these musical experiments, they are still trying to express cosmic meanings (the same loud performances by the composer Oleg Karavaichuk), then in the West they have long ago switched to more “sparing” and at the same time accessible and understandable to the general public forms.
