Description

Leonard Rose (1918-1984), the great American cellist, was considered one of the most important teachers and musicians of the twentieth century. Author Steven Honigberg, who studied at The Juilliard School from 1979 to 1984 in Leonard Rose's final class, examines the multifaceted American artist and the classical music context dominating Rose's twentieth century. This eagerly awaited biography portrays a complex individual during a period of tremendous individualism. Honigberg explores his sympathetic nature, his unyielding devotion to the cello, and, inevitably, his failings. Throughout, the reader sees Rose among the countless musical figures he affected as well as those who affected him.
