August 31, 2016 by norman lebrecht
This is the cello section of the Gerard Schwarz All-Star orchestra recording for PBS television at Suny College New York.
It features principals of the Met, Cincinnati, Richmond, associate of San Francisco, two members from the Philadelphia Orchestra, one from the New York Philharmonic, one from the National Symphony and Gerard Schwarz.
Over four sessions in two days they recorded: Sibelius no.2, Elgar Enigma Variations, Goosens Jubilee Variations, Mussorgsky’s Bald Mountain, Britten Variations, Hovaness Mysterious Mountain, Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet.
They should get together more often.
