Notes & Reviews:
Leonard Rose is without a doubt one of the most prominent cellists and pedagogues of the twentieth century. After completing his schooling at Philadelphia's Curtis Insitute of Music, he joined the NBC Symphony Orchestra under Arturo Toscanini and almost immediately became associate principal. At 21 he became principal of the Cleveland Orchestra, and just five years later principal of the New York Philharmonic. All of the tracks on this release are recordings from live performances or live broadcasts, dating from the peak of his career between the years 1961 and 1973. He performs alongside other well-known names such as Nadia Reisenberg and Eugene Istomin.
