The Bottom Line

'A cellist is quite unmistakable. There is a touch of nostalgia that can be recognized like a scar, left from a long battle-often a losing one-against the odds of his instrument. His melancholic disposition is particularly apparent when he has to perform something spirited and gay, often found in passages written in such awkward positions as to make them sound sad enough for tears.'

I love the cello,  and the above quote from Russian cellist Gregor Piatigorsky.  I also love this image, breath taking and parraell's the beautiful solidarity a cellist must accept. If you can help me credit the artist, please let me know. My research only indicates it is an image from an Art Calendar, but nothing on the artist thus far.

Yes, a beautiful image. But I think that's a double bass he's holding above his head.
