William Henry Squire was Britain’s leading cellist from the late 1890s to the late 1920s and a prolific artist in the early recording era. He composed a series of exquisite miniatures for the instrument, the finest of which are collected here for the first time. Five of the twenty have never before been recorded. Cellist Oliver Gledhill has researched Squire’s performance style extensively, and brings this knowledge to bear on his interpretations.
