History & Features of Cello
Cello alias Violoncello; Contrabass is a large member of the Violin family, which also includes Violin and Viola. The cello is a stringed and stringed instrument that began to form in France in the early 16th century. This instrument resembles a woman's body in terms of its shape and has a very pleasant sound. The ancestor of the cello is a fretted instrument named Viola Da Gamba, which emerged in the 1400s. This 7-stringed instrument, similar to the guitar but played with a bow, developed over time and reached its current 4-string form. Due to its size, it is taken between the legs and played in this way. There are two sound holes in the middle of the cello, reminiscent of the letter F. As in all stringed instruments, in the cello, the strings are stretched with an apparatus called Ear or Auger, and the tuning is done by rotating this apparatus. Thanks to the Fix screws added later, the instrument can be tuned and fine-tuned more easily. On the cello, which is played by pressing the fingers of the left hand on the black areas called the Tushe, the sound is produced with the Arche (bow), which is used with the right hand. Just like the Double Bass and other stringed instruments, it is possible to make sound on the Cello with the Pizz (pulling the strings with fingers) technique. The tuning system -do -sol -re -la is applied to the strings from bass to treble.
Some surviving cellos were made in the 1560s by the Italian manufacturer Andrea Amati . Until the end of the 18th century, the cello was not a prominent instrument and filled the gaps in the piece by giving the bass sound in music. However, during the Baroque period, composers such as Antonia Vivaldi and Luigi Boccherini wrote suites for Cello only. By the 19th century, concertos and similar works for the cello were written by names such as Johannes Brahms and Antonin Dvorak. In the 20th century, composers such as Sergei Prokofiev and Dimitri Shostakovich explored the possibilities of the cello and developed it as a solo instrument.
