Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
Fanfare (7-8/98, pp.81-82) - "..Hartshorne managed, through sheer Yankee ingenuity, to play the suites in the original keys and to preserve not only double, triple, and quadruple stops that traditional tunings render impossible but even resonant pedals based on the cello's open strings....Recommended with reverential urgency."
