Magnacore Arioso for Cello

‘The singing character of these strings facilitates wonderful, cantabile, legato passages and brings to me as a player inspiration to discover new possibilities with my instrument.’

Christopher Franzius

The Arioso G and C have now been joined by the Arioso A and D to complete the Magnacore Arioso set. Experience a new freedom of expression without a compromise in power. Well suited to both older Italian as well as modern instruments. For the gourmet musician experimenting with new combinations of sound texture and colour: Free your voice: Created to Sing with a Subtle Power.

Magnacore ® Arioso Set

The complete Magnacore Arioso set. To achieve the optimal balance we have combined the lower tension of the G & C with the medium tension A & D Arioso. The overall result is a medium tension set delivering great projection combined with a wide range of sound colours.

With the completion of Magnacore Arioso Christopher Franzius, First Principal Cello of the NDR Elbphilharmonie and a longtime friend, has been one of the driving forces involved in the development. Already passionate about Magnacore Arioso C and G here is Christopher’s review of the final completion with the A and D:

‘The new Arioso A and D strings not only hold the well-known charm of the warm Larsen sound but set also new standards with their harmonious brilliance and easiest playing up to the highest positions. The singing character of these strings facilitates wonderful, cantabile, legato passages and brings to me as a player inspiration to discover new possibilities with my instrument.

Combined with the C and G strings already on the market, they form an ideal symbiosis. The instrument sounds more free and open, it resonates longer and simply feels good. I would say: Strings to satisfy the highest of demands.’
