Pablo Casals, considered to be one of the most influential cellists

A person who plays the cello is called a cellist. This list of notable cellists is divided into four categories: 1) Living Classical Cellists; 2) Non-Classical Cellists; 3) Deceased Classical Cellists; 4) Deceased Non-Classical Cellists.

The cello (/ˈtʃɛloʊ/ chel-oh; plural cellos or celli) is a bowed string instrument with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. It is a member of the violin family of musical instruments.

To keep the lists usable and useful, please include only those who have attained notability as cellists. Please do not add those known for other activities who happen to play or have played the cello either professionally (e.g., the conductor Arturo Toscanini and composer Heitor Villa-Lobos) or privately (e.g., the actress Rosamund Pike). Also, please do not add people without Wikipedia articles, unless you can also add a reference to verify the person's notability as a cellist.
