Cellist Beth Vanderborgh performs forgotten works from the well respected cellist August Nölck..

August Nölck was a respected and well-published cello teacher of his day, a director of the Vienna conservatory and a voice from the great German cello tradition of the 19th century. He authored a catalog of cello pieces numbering in the hundreds of opuses, yet no mention of his name appears in contemporary histories of famous cellists. This recording of Nölck’s salon music for cello and piano should help bring his music and his accomplishments back to the attention of cellists and audiences. Cellist Beth Vanderborgh enjoys a rich and varied career as both soloist and chamber musician. She is principal cellist of the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra and on the faculty at the University of Wyoming. She is joined by colleague Theresa Bogard.

Review:
“…Nölck’s music turns out to be utterly captivating. …his music does what it sets out to do with utter grace, poise, and confidence. …Give and take between the perform-ers is exceptional…and both have an ideal sense of pacing… “ (Fanfare)

“Vanderborgh and Bogard play this material in a warmly emotional style that expresses the music is a well-rounded way. There is enough technical work and high-register pas-sages to show the cellist’s chops without making either her or the listener nervous.” (American Record Guide)
