All great reasons!
My #1 reason is #1 on their list. You know that full, warm feeling and sound you hear when an orchestra plays? That primarily comes from the cello. Because of its range, as well as the tone the cello produces, it fills the orchestra and provides a rich overall sound. You have to have cellos in the orchestra, or the strings will simply sound like a violin chamber.

This article is still in my favorites, being a long time bassist, I took to the Cello very naturally, best move I ever made! The Viola and Violin on the other had are very difficult for me, based just on the position I have to put my left hand in, it's painful! I should have took up the Cello 30 years ago.
So true every word!
I love cello every way, but I have also my special reason which is quite difficult to explain. I could maybe do it in my motherlanguage, but it’s much harder to find right words in English.
I play the cello because it speaks to me. When I got my cello I just knew it was the moment I have waited whole my life. As a child I always wanted to play cello, but my parents told me it’s too difficult and didn’t let me even try! This has been the biggest sorrow of my life It took years to get over it that nobody believed me, but finally I found my path and courage to make my dreams come true.
I don’t know if I did say this right. It is just that feeling, I feel playing the cello is something much more than just playing for me. I can’t get that feeling with any other instrument.
