“Pure gold” is how the New York Times once described the playing of Leonard Rose. To mark the centennial of the renowned American cellist’s birth, Sony Classical is pleased to announce a comprehensive reissue of his concerto and solo chamber discography on this extensive release. Made for American Columbia over a quarter century from 1949 to 1974, the recordings include Rose’s collaborations with three of America’s finest orchestras – those of New York, Philadelphia and Cleveland – under their iconic conductors Dimitri Mitropoulos, Bruno Walter, George Szell, Leonard Bernstein and Eugene Ormandy. Leonard Rose often told his students that playing in an orchestra was the best way to prepare for a solo career. He spoke from experience. By the age of 20 he was Toscanini’s NBC Symphony principal cellist. The next season he was Artur Rodzinski’s principal in the Cleveland Orchestra, and when Rodzinski moved to the New York Philharmonic in 1943, Rose followed him there as principal. Two years later, he made his recording debut, as solo cellist in Villa-Lobos’s beloved Cantilena, accompanying soprano Bidú Sayão under the composer’s direction. In 1947, he was a part of a trio accompanying tenor Christopher Lynch in an album of Irish folksongs. The first release of those rare early Rose recordings – the folksongs were previously available only on 78s – are included as a bonus for Rose completists in the new Sony Classical release.SET CONTENTSDISC 1:Villa-Lobos: Aria - Cantilena from Bachiana brasileira No. 5 (Bidú Sayão, soprano; Leonard Rose, cello)Moore-Traditional: The minstrel boy (Christopher Lynch, tenor; John Wummer, flute; Leonard Rose, cello; Laura Newell, harp)Traditional: The garden where the praties grow (Christopher Lynch, tenor; John Wummer, flute; Leonard Rose, cello; Laura Newell, harp)Spencer-Glover: The rose of Tralee (Christopher Lynch, tenor; John Wummer, flute; Leonard Rose, cello; Laura Newell, harp)Sargent-Traditional: The Palatine's daughter (Christopher Lynch, tenor; John Wummer, flute; Leonard Rose, cello; Laura Newell, harp)Brennan-Ball: A little bit of heaven (Christopher Lynch, tenor; John Wummer, flute; Leonard Rose, cello; Laura Newell, harp)Traditional: A Ballynure ballad (Christopher Lynch, tenor; John Wummer, flute; Leonard Rose, cello; Laura Newell, harp)Olcott-Graff-Ball: When Irish eyes are smiling (Christopher Lynch, tenor; John Wummer, flute; Leonard Rose, cello; Laura Newell, harp)Moore-Traditional: The young man moon (Christopher Lynch, tenor; John Wummer, flute; Leonard Rose, cello; Laura Newell, harp)Lover-Lohr: You'd better ask me (Christopher Lynch, tenor; John Wummer, flute; Leonard Rose, cello; Laura Newell, harp)DISC 2:Bloch: Schelomo Hebraic Rhapsody for Cello & OrchestraSaint-Saens: Concerto No. 1 in A Minor for Cello and Orchestra, Op. 33DISC 3:Beethoven: Cello Sonata No. 3 in A Major, Op. 69 (Leonard Rose, cello; Mieczyslaw Horszowski, piano)Beethoven: Sonata No. 5 in D Major for Cello and Piano, Op. 102, No. 2 (Leonard Rose, cello; Leonid Hambro, piano)DISC 4:Franck: Sonata in A for Cello and Piano (Leonard Rose, cello; Leonid Hambro, piano)Grieg: Sonata for Piano and Cello in A Minor, Op. 36 (Leonard Rose, cello; Leonid Hambro, piano)DISC 5:Schubert: Sonata in A minor For Cello and Piano, D.821 "Arpeggione" (Leonard Rose, cello; Leonid Hambro, piano)Boccherini: Sonata No. 6 in A Major for Cello and Piano, G. 4 (Leonard Rose, cello; Leonid Hambro, piano)Sammartini: Sonata in G Major (Leonard Rose, cello; Leonid Hambro, piano)DISC 6:Brahms: Sonata No. 1 for Cello and Piano in E Minor, Op. 38 (Leonard Rose, cello; Leonid Hambro, piano)Brahms: Sonata No. 2 for Cello and Piano in F Major, Op. 99 (Leonard Rose, cello; Leonid Hambro, piano)DISC 7:Brahms: Double Concerto in A minor For Violin and Cello, Op. 102 (Isaac Stern, violin; Leonard Rose, cello)Beethoven: Concerto in C Major for Piano, Violin, Violoncello and Orchestra, Op. 56 "Triple Concerto" (John Corigliano, violin; Leonard Rose, cello; Walter Hendl, piano)DISC 8:Schumann: Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in A minor, Op. 129Bloch: Schelomo Hebraic Rhapsody for Cello & OrchestraDISC 9:Barber: Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 38: John Browning, pianoSchuman: Songs of Orpheus (Fantasy for Cello and Orchestra)DISC 10:Dvorak: Concerto in B minor for Cello and Orchestra, Op. 104Tchaikovsky: Variations on a Rococo Theme for Cello and Orchestra in A Major, Op. 33DISC 11:Brahms: Concerto in A minor for Violin, Cello and Orchestra, Op. 102 "Double Concerto" (Isaac Stern, violin; Leonard Rose, cello)Beethoven: Concerto for Violin, Cello, Piano and Orchestra in C Major, Op. 56, "Triple Concerto" (Isaac Stern, violin; Leonard Rose, cello; Eugene Istomin, piano)DISC 12:Schubert: Sonata in A minor For Cello and Piano, D.821 "Arpeggione" (Leonard Rose, cello; Samuel Sanders, piano)Schumann: Fantasiestücke, Op. 73 (Leonard Rose, cello; Samuel Sanders, piano)Chopin: Introduction and Polonaise Brillante for Cello and Piano, Op. 3 (Leonard Rose, cello; Samuel Sanders, piano)DISC 13:Lalo: Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in D MinorSaint-Saens: Concerto No. 1 for Cello and Orchestra in A minor, Op. 33Fauré: Elegy for Cello and Orchestra, Op. 24DISC 14:Bach: Sonata No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1027 (Glenn Gould, piano; Leonard Rose, cello)Bach: Sonata No. 2 in D Major, BWV 1028 (Glenn Gould, piano; Leonard Rose, cello)Bach: Sonata No. 3 in G minor, BWV 1029 (Glenn Gould, piano; Leonard Rose, cello)
