"We knew we wanted to have our own tone for the show. And then the big instrument that actually we came up with was the cello. It has a big range. It can play really low. It can play high. And it has a dark sound, and 'Game Of Thrones' is obviously - it's a dark show, and the cello became the featured instrument." - Ramin Djawadi
It is my aim, my destination in life to make the cello as beloved an instrument as the violin and piano. - Mstislav Rostropovich
