I was listening to a classical music and I noticed the breathing of the cellist. I've heard that there is a finer way of singing without the breathing sound of the singer. Can this be applied to wind instrumentalists?

Well, I have never come across a cellist breathing while playing the instrument but for one, it takes practice for a string player to know to best play an instrument without their breathing being noticeable. It is important for a cellist to understand how to develop playing techniques (articulating the lips and lungs taking in air).

You know they're breathing while they play, right? Otherwise, they'd be dead. That's a tongue in cheek response as I'm sure that's not what you meant.

A cello is a string instrument, not a wind instrument. Compared to other types, playing most of the string instruments is more similar to aerobic exercise. It requires quite a bit of stamina to move the bow like that and some of these instruments aren't easy to hold. Playing a musical instrument is also a form of communication so it makes sense that a cellist's breathing might be more noticeable during the most passionate parts. I agree though that sometimes it seems overdone and it can be distracting. Wind instruments require different breathing techniques for the most part.

Well, I'm not quite sure what you guys are getting at with the cellists breathing, but sometimes I do notice sounds from the musicians while listening to classical music. It can be a bit distracting, but it doesn't take away from the beauty of the music for me.
