A Grand Tour of Cello Technique is a thought-provoking practice guide, enabling cellists at all levels to develop their own style through an exploration of different ways of fingering and bowing. The book not only helps cellists improve their playing, but also promotes an understanding of musical art, through nine stimulating chapters.
With a particular emphasis on music of the 20th and 21st centuries, and its connections with earlier music, Fred Sherry takes the reader on a voyage of discovery of the art and science of cello technique, informed by music ranging from Bach all the way through to Berio.
Fred Sherry has introduced audiences on five continents and all fifty United States to the music of our time for more than five decades. He has had close working relationships with Charles Wuorinen, Lukas Foss, Oliver Knussen, Elliott Carter, Milton Babbitt, Toru Takemitsu, Chick Corea, Pierre Boulez, Mario Davidovsky and others whose works he has premiered and recorded. He has been soloist and ‘sideman’ on hundreds of commercial and esoteric recordings; his discography ranges from Schütz, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms through Schoenberg and Stravinsky to the 20th and 21st century works written for him. He is a member of the cello faculty of The Juilliard School, the Mannes College of Music and the Manhattan School of Music.
