Romberg Bernhard

Bernhard Romberg (1767-1841) was a German violinist and composer. Born in musical family, he learned to play cello from his father, bassoonist and cellist Anton Romberg and later joined the court orchestra in Münster. During that period he extensively toured throughout Europe with his father and cousin Andreas Romberg who played violin. In 1790 he and his cousin Andreas moved to Bonn to join the court orchestra of the Prince Elector where he met young Beethoven who was a member of the orchestra and admired Bernhard.
Gradually he gained fame as a cellist and innovator, who made significant improvements for cello, including so-called Romberg bevel fingerboard, and simplifying cello notation to only three clefs. He composed mostly for cello as well as for various chamber music groups.
