Who is the greatest cellist of all time? Show more Show less

The cello is a string instrument known for its soulful, singing, almost human voice like sound, and can be found soloing, in chamber music, or as one of the foundation pieces of a symphony orchestra. A number of players have transformed the cello into the solo voice that it is today. But of them, who is the greatest?

Rose was the principal cellist of 2 of the world's greatest orchestras.

At just 21 and 26 respectively he was the principal cellist of the Cleveland Orchestra, and New York Philharmonic. To be trusted with such a responsibility at a very young age is a spectacular achievement.
