Notes and Editorial Reviews

Leonard Rose, the legendary American cellist and mentor to Haimovitz, Ma and many fine cellists, is remembered in The Rose Album. Cellist Matt Haimovitz and friends perform Schubert's beloved Arpeggione Sonata and romantic works by Chopin, Schumann and Paganini are included, along with a recent composition by American composer Robert Stern. Inside the CD booklet, vignettes from Haimovitz's youth among such artists as Itzhak Perlman, Isaac Stern & Yo-Yo Ma are interspersed with musical commentary on the pieces. Photographs from historic Mechanics Hall and Kibutz Eilon in Israel complete the package: Eleven years old, I waited anxiously for Leonard Rose. That afternoon, in his studio overlooking Broadway at 66th Street, my audition lasted Read more over two hours. I would finish a piece and, with a grandfatherly half-grin, he would ask, "What else do you have for me?" This album is dedicated to my teacher and mentor, who, from that first meeting, so graciously invited me into his world. Today his words and teachings resonate in my mind, opening new paths, revealing new insights. While nearly two decades have passed, I feel as close as ever, closer than ever, to the sound wisdom that Leonard Rose passed on; his impact on me only increases with time. As one of many cellists with whom he shared so much, I offer my memory of this mensch through music that was close to his heart and mine. -- Matt Haimovitz Read less
