Abstract: This study presents an annotated bibliography of over 270 books and dissertations on cello studies published or submitted between 2000 and 2015. Topics include General Reference, Instrument Studies, Cellists, Repertoire, Performance, and Pedagogy. The catalog has been restricted to English-language, non-juvenile, non-fiction books and doctoral dissertations. An introductory chapter describes the bibliography's purposes, parameters, research methods, and entry format. This is followed by category descriptions and a categorized list of works, in which author and title for each book or dissertation are listed below various sub-categories of the six topics (listed above). The annotated bibliography itself appears next, each entry listed alphabetically by author and containing a full citation, category indicator(s), and annotation. "The Twenty-First Century Cellist's Bibliography" represents the first recent research guide to the cello. While a small number of research guides for classical instruments have been published in recent years (e.g., violin, recorder, and bassoon), no such guide has existed for the cello. Teachers, students, performers, and cello enthusiasts of all kinds will find a wealth of resources on a wide range of familiar and unfamiliar cello topics within this study.
