Notes & Reviews:

American composer, cellist, and arranger Alan Shulman (1915-2002) made a distinct and significant contribution to American music. He was a fellowship student at the Juilliard School studying both cello (with Felix Salmond) and composition (with Bernard Wagenaar.) He then continued his studies on cello with Emanuel Feuermann and in composition with Paul Hindemith. Shulman had a significant career as cellist, teacher, arranger and, of course, composer. He performed extensively as cellist of the Kreiner, Stuyvesant, and Haydn String Quartets, the Philharmonia and Vardi Trios, with An Die Musik, and as a charter member of both the NBC Symphony Orchestra under Arturo Toscanini and the Symphony of the Air. Shulman was a notable and active teacher for many decades. Primarily know for his Theme and Variations for Viola and Orchestra, his body of fine solo cello literature is virtually unknown today. This recording intends to begin raising awareness of this important music.
