The cello is an incredibly expressive and versatile instrument, reflecting the scope and trends of western music history. In this course, we will explore the origins of the cello, compare the unique artistries of historic cellists, enjoy movements from the monumental Suites for Unaccompanied Cello by Bach, look through the intimate lens of sonatas and chamber music, and indulge in the expressive and virtuosic brushstrokes of the concerto repertoire. Live performances by outstanding cellists from the University of Arizona Cello Studio will be featured in class. Finally, this incredibly rich and revealing repertoire will be framed within the larger context of the constantly changing trends that shape music history and culture.
