Latest reviews of our Cellists in Aberdeenshire

Cellist Erdem
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Erdem was an absolute professional, he played in accordance to the venue and was able to tailor the requested playlist on his own so it would blend seamlessly into the occasion. Everyone loved his performance and he’s the kind of musician who doesn’t need much support or guidance to deliver excellent results. He’s very professional and very friendly and is always willing to accommodate and provide constructive input. We requested a very foreign song, not known widely and Erdem studied the song for us and the result was absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend him,"

FAQs about hiring Cellists in Aberdeenshire

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

How do you pronounce cellist?

In British English, the word "cellist" is pronounced as "CHEL-ist." The emphasis is on the first syllable, and the "c" is pronounced as "ch," making it sound like "CHEL-ist.”

What kind of music can a cellist play?

Just about anything! Cellists will usually be most comfortable playing classical music, but that doesn't mean they won't be able to put together a fresh rendition of your favourite pop, folk, or jazz tune. Always discuss any requests with the cellist beforehand to give them enough time to practice.

Will I need to provide the cellist with any equipment?

Other than a seat without arms, probably not. If your venue is small, they will likely play unamplified. All they'll need to make the music happen is their cello, a bow, and a receptive audience (oh, and probably a music stand). If your venue is larger, they should be able to provide amplification.

Can a cellist play the violin?

Whether or not a cellist can play the violin depends on their skills and experience. While there are some similarities between the two instruments, there are also some significant differences. Similarities - Both instruments are bowed stringed instruments, which means that they are played by rubbing a bow across strings to produce sound. - Both instruments have four strings. - Both instruments are used in a variety of musical genres, including classical, jazz, and folk. Differences - The violin is significantly smaller than the cello. This means that cellists will need to adapt their technique to play the violin, such as using a shorter bow and adjusting their fingering positions. - The cello has a warmer, richer sound than the violin. This is due to the larger size of the cello and the way that its sound resonates within the cello's body. - The violin is more agile and expressive than the cello. This is due to the smaller size of the violin and the fact that it is held closer to the body, which allows cellists to use more arm and hand movements. While it is possible for cellists to learn to play the violin, it will require some adjustment and practice. If you are interested, we have multi-instrumentalists on our books, including cellists who play the violin. Get in touch with one of our experts today to find the right one for your event.
