Baroque Era songs for cello
Some of the most beloved music comes from the Baroque era. Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel are some of the well known names from this style period, which went from about 1600 to 1750. The important pieces from this era that feature the cello are The Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello by Bach and Vivaldi's Six Sonatas for Cello. The cello is an important instrument for Baroque ensemble music, since the cello normally plays the basso continuo part, which is a Baroque Era development. Also, many violin pieces have been transcribed for cello, so cellists can play some of the other great melodies from this time period. Since the cello was invented shortly before the Baroque Era, most music for cello comes from this time period or later.
