Cello

Also called violoncello,bass musical instrument of the violin
group, with four strings, pitched C-G-D-A upward from two octaves
below middle C. The earliest cellos were developed during the 16th
century and frequently were made with five strings. They served mainly
to reinforce the bass line in ensembles. Only during the 17th and 18th
centuries did the cello replace the bass viola da gamba as a solo
instrument. During the 17th century the combination of cello and
harpsichord for basso continuo parts became standard.

Joseph Haydn, Mozart, and later composers gave increased prominence to the cello in instrumental ensembles. Notable works for the instrument include J.S. Bach's six suites for unaccompanied cello, Beethoven's five sonatas for cello and piano, the concerto of Antonín Dvořák, the sonatas of
Siergiej Rachmaninov and Claude Debussy, and the Bachianas brasileiras
of Heitor Villa-Lobos for eight cellos and soprano. One of the outstanding cellists of the 20th century was Mścisław Rostropovich.
