“…in George Crumb’s piece Voice of the Whale, cellist Felix Fan coaxed sounds from his Stradivari cello that were inconceivable when it was built in 1724. With one hand moving lightly up and down the fingerboard, and the other hand busy bowing, he produced eerie glissandos that vividly recalled the underwater arias of whales.”
