A Publisher Spotlight
CelloLid, a specialist publisher of music for cello, was founded by Mats Lidström, an internationally acclaimed soloist and chamber musician (hence CelloLid). Formerly available from Spartan Press, this ever-growing catalogue is now proudly distributed worldwide by Stainer & Bell.
Along with original solo compositions, duets, studies and methods, Mats has also created imaginative transcriptions and adaptations for the instrument. Especially notable is his series If Bach Was a Cellist where he imagines what JS Bach might have done had he written everything with the cello in mind.
Mats Lidström’s compositions are characterised by their tonal richness and harmonious palettes and frequently feature as integral components of his concert repertoire.
