Cello Quotations

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

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

The cello is such a versatile instrument. It can rock like the hardest rock guitar, and it can sing like the human voice. We couldn't do what we do without the classical training. It's a hard instrument to play. There are no frets, and it takes finesse and technique to play.
Luka Sulic

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

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