Felix Salmond was one of the most important cellists in Britain at the beginning of the 20th century. He was a close friend of Sir Edward Elgar who entrusted him to give the world premiere of his Cello Concerto. Salmond eventually immigrated to the United States, where he became a distinguished teacher numbering such fine cellists as Tibor de Machula, Leonard Rose, Bernard Greenhouse, Orlando Cole, Frank Miller, Sammy Mayes and Alan Shulman among his students. This 2-CD release features the complete electrical recordings Salmond made for American Columbia. This includes recordings of the Beethoven A-major and Greig A-minor Cello Sonatas, as well as numerous short encore pieces, including such beloved favourites as Schumann's Traumerei and Abendlied, Saint-Saëns The Swan, Fauré's Après un rêve, the "Intermezzo" from Granados's Goyescas, and Bruch's poignant Kol nidre. All of these rare recordings have never been reissued in either LP or CD format until now.
