 America's greatest cellist January 17, 2017 By bruce surtees (toronto, ON) See All My Reviews "The late Leonard Rose was an American cellist who was best known during the 1950s and the 1960s through his Columbia recordings of concertos with the New York Philharmonic and The Philadelphia Orchestra and later as a member of the very special, Stern, Rose, Istomin trio. Well respected are his early 1950s recordings with the New York Philharmonic, of which he was principal cellist, of Bloch’s Schelomo with Dimitri Mitropoulos and Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations under George Szell. Although many or most of his Columbia recordings remain in print as reissues, collectors are always on the lookout for live performances from around the world residing in radio archives. There are three cello concertos; Dvorak with Charles Dutoit and the ORTF Orchestra (1967), Saint-Saens No.1 and the Rococo Variations with Louis de Froment from Radio Luxembourg (1961) and Beethoven’s Fifth Cello Sonata with Eugene Istomin (Stratford 1969). From WQXR in NYC, playing with pianist Nadia Reisenberg, Rose plays Beethoven’s Third Cello Sonata and Brahms First Cello Sonata (1973). These performances issued by Doremi (DHR-8038/9, 2CDs) are not intended to replace his commercial recordings but to confirm and enjoy his unmistakable, now legendary powerful sonorities and musicianship."
