Dear Brian,
I've just discovered that you have been performing the life of the bee. thanks for championing what i think is a lovely cycle (a truly wonderful gift in my life). I'm always happy to hear that the songs are being played and sung.

Dear Brian,

I hope you are doing well. I was pleasantly surprised when your student, Mathew Eardley, called us about cellos and told me that you were teaching at Boise State. Congrats! I've talked to a lot of musicians in Idaho, and all of them love the surroundings. Please let me know if i can ever be of service to you and your students in the future...I certainly welcome your feedback on the cello that Mathew is trying, whether good or bad, since your comments are so valuable in making sure we're offering our customers the best cellos we can find with the best setups we can do.

All the best this Holiday season!
Sincerely,

Hans Anderson

Brian,

Our daughter, Rozanna is getting married at FBC, Greensboro on Wednesday, December 31 at 6:30 p.m. She graduated from ECU in sacred music. Her organ professor and Choral director will be leading the music at the ceremony. She would like for the prelude to be a collaborative effort between the organist, Dr. Fishell and a cellist. Would you by chance be spending the holidays in Greensboro and if so would you be interested in playing?

I look forward to hearing from you and miss having you play here. Hope things are going well at Mercer. You're around a lot of Baptists!

Doug

You look like a cellist I met at a castle in Heidelberg one summer. Could it be?

Hi Brian!

Just to remind you I'm the flute professor at BSU and I have a question for you about next semester. I am giving a faculty recital on October 10th at 7:30 here on campus and would like to ask you if you and your wife would be interested in performing the Martinu Trio for flute, cello and piano with me? Let me know and I can send you copies of the music asap. Then just give me a heads-up of when you will be officially in Boise and we will set up a reading/rehearsal session.

my contact information is:
office 208-426-1217
cell 208-571-5782
email nicolemolumby@boisestate.edu

I look forward to hearing back from you and congratulations on getting the job!

Review: Jeffrey Solow, in The Strad, April 2008:
‘This remarkable book is the result of a monumental research project…’
‘...exhausting and meticulous.’

A catalogue of this scope has never been published, and is the
result of over 35 years of research. Approximately 45,000 titles
written by over 15,000 composers are listed alphabetically by
composer and ordered by opus number, and alphabetically by title.
The ACC includes works for cello solo (also with electronics or tape),
cello and piano, cello and orchestra, cello duos and cello ensemble music,
duos with other instruments, solo cello with chamber ensemble, two or
more soloists and orchestra, cello and voice, methods and studies.
This unique project to document all music in which the cello has a solo
function – published or unpublished – is a reference work that will quickly
become every cellist’s companion.

Unlike other catalogues which list only published music available
at the time of publication, ACC gives a complete overview, listing
information from every possible source, including the published
edition, encyclopedias, thematic work lists, and library catalogues,
as well as publishers’ catalogues, music information services,
composer’s websites, flyers, announcements, the inside or back covers
of editions, auction notices, concert programs, and reviews in
newspapers and magazines. Although many titles have been
translated into English, whenever possible titles have been left in
their original language. Multiple spellings of composer’s names
are cross-referenced to the main spelling. Arrangements and
collections are cross-referenced to the original composer’s work.
The appendices include a very useful index of works by instrumentation,
an extensive list of publishers, library sigla, a bibliography, and a
short list of library sites where out-of-print editions can be located.

More than three hundred years after the violoncello became
established as a solo instrument, this comprehensive catalogue of
the literature for violoncello has been long awaited.

Sincerely, the authors

NICE WEBSITE!

I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD HELP ME. MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN ACCEPTED TO STUDY AT THE MANNES SCHOOL OF MUSIC IN THE FALL AS A STUDENT OF MARCY ROSEN. SHE WAS HOPING TO GET INTO TIMOTHY EDDY'S STUDIO BUT WAS WAITLISTED FOR THAT. SHE DOESN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MARCY ROSEN AS A TEACHER. SINCE YOU MENTION THAT SHE WAS ONE OF YOUR TEACHERS, I WAS WONDERING IF YOU WOULD MIND SHARING YOUR EXPERIENCE OF BEING A STUDENT OF HERS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR INSIGHT.

BEST WISHES,
DENNIS LUXION
