Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement
The purpose of this paper is to analyze the repertoire of the cello from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras, and how the demands of virtuosity and lyricism changed the way composers wrote for the instrument. These demands contribute to the progression of the cello as it shifts from an accompanying instrument, to that of a solo one. We will look at operas by Monteverdi and Handel; solo works by Bach; and concertos by Boccherini, Haydn, and Schumann.
