Hello fellow cellists, I'm looking for additional listening material to further inspire my own learning. My favorite at this point is Hildur Gudnadottir and would love to discover some similar cellists. Thanks

I suggest you watch YouTube videos. I just tried to find videos on the person you mentioned and am not exactly sure what I was listening to in the videos I found, so I can really figure out what type of music you would like. I could not figure it out. One of her bios said she is classically trained, but what I saw and heard did not appear to be classical. 

If it is classical, Google “classical cello” maybe even select “videos” to weed out non-videos. There are a couple of guys who have cello videos, I think think they call themselves, “2Cellos”. They do a variety of music.

You can also Google a particular style of cello, specific songs, or just “cello videos”. There are CD or MP3 offerings on Amazon and many have partial tracks you can listen to. I used to have a “wish list” for cello music CD’s on my Amazon account page, but I deleted it. I kept putting too many on it and it was too hard to sort. I just search Amazon Cello CD’s now when I am looking.

I am sorry I could not figure out exactly what you were looking for from the couple of videos I tried to watch of Hildur (Gave trying to type the last name properly, LOL. I need an old fashioned typewriter in order to type accurately.) The videos were not classical, pop, or anything I listen to. Maybe you could post a link(s) of a video(s) of hers that shows what you are looking for? I am assuming, she, like many, play many genres. 

Hope this helps.

They call me, “Mellow Cello”

She's more Avante-garde.

The hardest part is describing what you are looking for on a search. If I come up with anyone, I'll let you know. 🙂
