Importantly, David Milsom challenges the notion of distinct Franco-Belgian and German schools of violin playing, a critique that is relevant to the coherence of cello lineages as well; see Milsom, , Theory and Practice in Late Nineteenth-Century Violin Performance (Aldershot: Ashgate, 2003), 1327Google Scholar.

3 Matteo Gofriller (1659–1742) was a Venetian maker whose instruments are known for their warmth and large proportions (many have been cut down to a more modest size over the centuries). Several influential cellists have performed on Gofrillers, including Pablo Casals – although Casals’ instrument was thought to be by the Cremonese maker Carlo Bergonzi until after his passing.

4 ‘Saluons au passage les Variations symphoniques de M. Boëllmann. On est heureux de rencontrer … une oeuvre si bien faite et si intéressante. La pensée est noble, et noblement exprimée. L'orchestre de M. Boëllmann est coloré sans être bruyant, et n'étouffe jamais l'instrument principal; bien plus, il le fait toujours valoir. Ajoutons que l'interprète, M. Salmon, a été au-dessus de tout éloge, et que le public lui a justement manifesté ses sympathies en le rappelant trois fois’; Hippolyte Barbedette, ‘Concert Lamoureux’, Le Ménestrel 4 December 1892, 389.
