Description : A bowed string instrument, the lowest sounding member of the violin family. The cello has four strings tuned in perfect fifth intervals.
Commentaires : Formerly the property of the donor's grandfather, James D. Dixon who, with two of his brothers, played their cello with "taste and judgement" at the rededication of the enlarged Methodist chapel in Sackville in 1842.
Fonctions : First made as early as the mid-1500s. First known maker was Andrea Amati. These early ones were bigger than today's celli. The size change was undertaken to make it easier to play, with less tension on the player's left hand. Celli started to be mass-produced in the nineteenth century. Used as a solo instrument in chamber music and as a member of an orchestra's string section.
