Saint Sean's Allegro Apassionato is a fantastically tricky piece to learn; very fast, very high in the cello's register, difficult chords, (try flattening your 2nd finger across two strings,while holding down your 3rd finger on another. Not easy). But if you can play it well it sounds epic, a very show off-y kind of piece haha.

Vivaldi's 9 sonatas are great to learn as well if you fancy yourself some baroque period stuff.

If you want to try studying Dvoraks cello concerto in B minor, I would start with the 2nd movement first, as its the easiest. Then the 3rd, and finally the 1st. The first is the most difficult, the flying octaves are incredibly difficult. It's Dvorak didnt give two sh!ts about how demanding it was going to be! lol.

good luck fellow cellist!

The thing I love the most about cello is that it has the range that it can go from playing in the lower register in Gbmin, to the mid-upper registers in Fmaj. Cello makes my favorite chord sing: FminSus.

I love cello and I am still searching to find some cello bands

I was talking today with one violoncello player of our small orchestra...
He had his own czech cello band, but unfortunatelly they don't exist anymore.
Here is at least some video...




Probably everybody knows Apocalyptica and Rasputina but I got two other names - Hevein and Angher...
I am not sure how it is, I didn't try their music yet. It's metal.


Hevein




Angher

i second that. i also adore janos starker.

bach's 6 cello suites played by janos starker are incredible



zoltan kodaly - cello sonata

fournier's version is also incredible:

Rachmaninoff Cello Sonata in G minor Op.19 - rostropovich and horowitz



one of my favourite pieces of music though i am partial to the rostropovich - dedyukhin version

Exciting! I'm learning some basic cello at school right now and you really have to put your mind to it. But the result of practicing proper playing technique is a beautiful, deep, rich, resonating sound from a lovely instrument.

Can you read sheet music? There are probably some decent beginner's tutorials available that will start you on your journey, but a lot of those are not catered to aural learning.
