Bernard Romberg.
Bernard Romberg.
Gentili [signed in plate.] Kruger.
Verlag von Gebr. Gropius. [n.d., c.1820.]

Bernhard Heinrich Romberg (1767 - 1841), German cellist and composer. Romberg is notable for several innovations in cello design and performance. He lengthened the cello's fingerboard and flattened the side under the C string, thus giving it more freedom to vibrate. He suggested that half-size and 3/4 size cellos should be designed to make it easier for young children to play the instrument. Romberg is responsible for simplifying cello notation to only three clefs, the bass clef, the tenor clef and the treble clef. Until his time, it was common to use many clefs for multiple uses - the 18th century cellist-composer Luigi Boccherini used as many as six clefs in his compositions.
