Album Notes
Charles Forbes is a cellist, teacher and chamber music coach, with degrees from Harvard College and Manhattan School of Music. His principal cello teachers were Maurice Eisenberg and Bernard Greenhouse. He also studied cello with Luigi Silva and Pablo Casals, chamber music with Leonard Shure, and conducting with Jonel Perlea.

His orchestral experience includes playing principal cello with the American Symphony (under Stokowski), the Buffalo Philharmonic, the Princeton Chamber Orchestra, the Springfield, MA Symphony and the Vermont Symphony.

Mr. Forbes has given four solo recitals at Carnegie Recital Hall, and he played for thirty years with the New York Camerata, a chamber group with which he toured widely and recorded several discs. The group commissioned many works, including George Crumb\'s Voice of the Whale, and was the resident ensemble, with the New York-based Affililate Artists, in Wisconsin and Alabama for four seasons. He has also played with the Windsor String Quartet in Vermont, the Network for New Music, Relache, and the Chancellor Quartet in Philadelphia, and, currently, the string quartet Liebesfreud.

Charles Forbes has been on the faculties of Smith, Amherst and Mount Holyoke Colleges, Exeter Academy, the Manhattan School of Music, and the University of Delaware. He has been a chamber music coach with Princeton Chamber Music Play Week since it was founded 20 years ago.

He is the author of Cello Scales and Arpeggios, published by ECS Publishing and available at sharmusic.com.

He plays a David Tecchler cello made in Rome in 1713.

On this double disc recording, Charles Forbes is joined by the Philadelphia pianist David Shunskis, and niece Lydia Forbes, violinist in the Maine based Da Ponte Quartet.
