Biographical / Historical
Greenhouse worked with many of the great masters of the cello, including Emanuel Feuermann, Diran Alexanian, and most notably, Pablo Casals, who wrote of him, Bernard Greenhouse is not only a remarkable cellist, but what I esteem more, a dignified artist. As a master teacher himself, he has served on the faculties of the Manhattan School of Music, the State University of New York at Stony Brook, The Juilliard School, the Indiana University summer school, Rutgers University and the New England Conservatory. Greenhouse is the recipient of numerous awards, including Indiana University's "Chevalier du Violoncelle" in 1980, Chamber Music America's Richard J. Bogomolny National Service Award in 1988, and in 1996 (along with Mstislav Rostropovich) the RNCM Manchester International Cello Festival's Award of Distinction.
The Greenhouse Collection features not only this master's fingerings and bowings to the standard repertoire, but also his performance annotations from the piano trio, piano quartet and piano quintet repertoire made during his years with Beaux Arts. It also includes all of Mr. Greenhouse's solo and chamber recordings, and archived tapes from his many years with the Bach Aria group, featuring such legendary singers as Marian Anderson, Jan Peerce, Eileen Farrell and Jenny Tourel.
