There is nothing better for any instrumentalist than experiencing a different slant on one's warm-up routine by trying out someone else's from time to time...Mats shows that his aim is to help us reach the ultimate in our performances...the latter 3rd and 4th finger strengthening exercises are unparalleled to my knowledge.


...this volume is actually much more about developing their [students] playing in new and challenging ways rather than simply describing a way to "warm-up" as is suggested by the title...this book represents a clearly thought through distillation of his [Lidström's] ideas about how to set about playing the cello...For an advanced student who is willing and able to tune into Lidström's concepts...this will prove a most valuable purchase

Robert Max for Music Teacher

...a seriously passionate and humorous approach to the warm-up. Lidström's philosophy is to revitalise the technique each day with a "warm-up" using maximum input...This would be particularly useful as a textbook for university level cello students providing both structure and understanding for technique expansion.

Alison Macgregor, Australian String Teachers' Association

This well laid-out method is conceived as part of a professional or advanced amateur cellist's daily practice...the routine was excellent and exhausting...Several of the more straightforward sections work well with younger players...the author's intention: to provide an extensive warm-up for all aspects of your technique.
