I never get tired of hearing those pieces. So incredible… They have been transcribed for all kinds of other instruments. We’re not the only ones who love the suites!
What I love most about cello has got to be the range. Low enough to fill out the bottom end of an ensemble and rumble along, yet we can play high enough to cut through the orchestra and really be heard. I also really like accompanying fiddlers, especially celtic styles. Playing along with rhythmic grooves and getting to do chops is so fun!
