A Cellist's Life

Regular price $9.99

One of the 20th century's most distinguished cellists, Colin Hampton is your guide to a bygone world of classical music and musicians. Wise teacher, musical iconoclast, and nonpareil cellist of the illustrious Griller Quartet, Hampton helped to redefine the standards of contemporary chamber music, founded one of America's first cello clubs, and inspired generations of students. Through his witty, convivial, and candid narratives, you'll also encounter such luminaries as Pablo Casals, Ernest Bloch, Igor Stravinsky, Arturo Toscanini, Béla Bartók, Yehudi Menuhin, and others as never before. By Colin Hampton. Includes:

  • Education of a Musician
  • Great Players
  • Composers, Critics, and Allies
  • Thoughts on Technique
  • Teaching and Learning
  • Afterword by Ian Hampton

"I found the book engaging and thought provoking, and the sort of book that I will want to read and reread as the years go by. I'm glad to add it to my library, and I recommend it to cellists of all ages." —CelloHeaven.com
