Book cello for party

Want a classic sound for your upcoming event? Maybe you are looking for a cello for wedding? A cello is a great instrument and a great way to bring classical music to weddings and other intimate events. It is said that a cello is the instrument that most resembles the human voice. That's why, for many, the cello sounds beautiful and present and is a popular choice if you want classical music for your party.

A cello is one of the most poetic and beautiful of all instruments. There is something incredibly romantic, present and exclusive about both the instrument itself and of course the sound of a professional musician playing his instrument in perfect symbiosis.

In Limunt we have built up a solid roster of talented, approachable and professional string players who have a wide repertoire and are able to meet most requests. Contact Limunt if you want to book the right classical music to the party!

Why do many people choose the cello as an instrument for parties?

The right cello musician is able to mesmerize his audience with beautiful and heartfelt notes, giving your party just the right atmosphere of classical music - it's the perfect soundtrack for life's big parties!

However, when booking classical music - a solo cello, cello duet or similar for your party, there are a few things that are important to remember before you can make the right booking. Not all classical musicians can play contemporary songs arranged for cello - in the same way that musicians who play a more contemporary repertoire are not always skilled at playing Bach or Mozart. Even if you find a very professional cellist, they may not be the right one for your party, as there is a big difference between playing in a concert hall and at an event, where the music should just be part of the party and not the main attraction.


Popular cello bookings

Strings for parties - live cello or cello duo?

Many people find themselves in a difficult situation when they decide to book a cello for a party. Should they book a single musician, or should they choose a cello duet, trio or quartet instead. The final choice depends on a number of factors.

At Limunt, we believe that a cello - as one of the only classical instruments for parties - can serve as a solo instrument for parties, if the event and venue allow it. So your event should match an intimate, present and smaller performance. So what makes a cello work well as a solo instrument? A few facts about the cello can back it up: the instrument has four strings like a violin, but because of the size of the instrument, the sound box and the length of each string, the instrument has a sound and expression that can stand alone - especially in a room with beautiful acoustics, such as a church. The instrument can play both deep bass tones and high melodies - and in this way the instrument can often carry solo playing without other string instruments. There are few things as beautiful as a cello in a church, concert hall or other room with good acoustics optimised for acoustic instruments.

The cello can thus easily be booked as the main instrument for reception or a marriage. This can also be an advantage for you who are organising a party where there is not much space for the music. This applies both to the venue itself - it can be difficult to fit more than one musician, but at the same time a solo musician doesn't 'take up' as much of the budget as multiple musicians do, as one musician obviously costs less than two or three. 

In Limunt, we prioritise good music and a good experience for our customers - and we would therefore always recommend booking, for example, a duo with cello and violin, as this line-up provides much more dynamics, texture and expression in the sound itself when there are several playing together. Two classical musicians at a party sound more than twice as good as a single musician, as in a string duo, for example, there is both interaction and interplay. Skilled musicians manage to leave space for each other to shine at different points in the music. In turn, a trio provides more texture and expression than a duo. With three instruments, so-called 'three-tones' can be played which really help to colour the music and expression. A string quartet is an ensemble of four classical musicians (violin, violin, viola/bratsch and cello). This option is our most booked. For most people, the quartet is the sound that plays to their 'inner ear' when they imagine classical music. Choose a classical quartet if you want the best and don't want to compromise on the music.

    The best music for cello

    Much classical music is written for the cello. Here, Bach's cello suites are some of what our solo cellists play most at various events, as the music is beautiful, dynamic and expressive, yet understandable to most. In fact, many Danes can hum along to Bach's Cello Suite No. 1, for example, and other of the best-known pieces of cello music. We also offer cellists who can play more contemporary music in classical string interpretation. Here 'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' is a popular choice, as the song itself is soulful, romantic and at the same time familiar to most. 

    Do you have a special piece of music you want performed on the cello? Contact Limunt to hear about the possibilities for a unique performance of your favourite song.

    In Limunt we sometimes get requests for cello jazz. The cello is rarely used in jazz music, so most of the time there is a confusion and people really mean double bass. The double bass is bigger, plays deeper notes and is often used in jazz music. Click here if you are interested in booking live jazz!

    Kira / Private event

    Book a cellist and create a wonderful party!

    Many people choose to book a cello because the instrument is beautiful - to listen to, of course - but also to look at. Professional cellists often have very old instruments that have only gotten better and nicer over time. It is thought-provoking for most to imagine how many concerts and performances have been performed on such an old instrument.
