Maurice Gendron: Charm and Cello

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Maurice Gendron (1920-1990) played on an instrument that now bears his
name. It is a Stradivari cello of 1693, and in honour of this great cellist it is
now known as the "Gendron, Lord Speyer" cello. Gendron felt himself born
under a lucky star. After studies in his birthplace Nice, where he already
showed exceptional promise, he moved to Paris. His stupendous ability and
charming manner soon spread his reputation, and in the artistically inclined
French capital he attracted the attention of such prominent figures as
Picasso, Mauriac and Cocteau. The end of the Second World War opened the
doors of the world's concert halls to him. One early highlight was the
European first performance of the Prokofiev Cello Concerto op. 58 with the
Philharmonic Orchestra under Walter Susskind in London in 1945. Pablo
Casals himself, the revered role model of all twentieth-century cellists,
invited Gendron to make music with him. So did the violinist Yehudi Menuhin,
who invited him to make up a trio together with his sister Hephzibah.
