Leonard Rose is very unjustifiably forgoten. IMO he had the best Arpegione and Lalo's c.c. on record. He was an fantastic cellist,with a beautiful sound.

There was, briefly, a competition named in his honor, but I couldn't find it when I looked for it a couple months ago.

If anybody would know ... it would be our Peter Schenkman. I'm sure he'll post something here.
