Cello Quotations

There are limits to how much sound a cello can make. That's part of the framing of acoustical instruments. Finding what those limits might be, and then trying to suggest perhaps even the illusion of going beyond is part of that kind of effort.
Yo-Yo Ma

When I started learning the cello, I fell in love with the instrument because it seemed like a voice - my voice.
Mstislav Rostropovich

The cello is such a melancholy instrument, such an isolated, miserable instrument.
Ritchie Blackmore

I played the cello from when I was ten, and then I bought a guitar from the father of some friends of mine and played that for a while. And then when I was fourteen or so, I bought a guitar - a real nice one - in Durham, North Carolina, that I worked with up until I was about twenty-five.
James Taylor

It is my aim, my destination in life to make the cello as beloved an instrument as the violin and piano.
Mstislav Rostropovich
