Lorne Munroe

Principal Cello,
New York Philharmonic

Code: CACD0517


11.20 / 12.54






“...a consummate artist...his golden tone and thoughtful eloquence give very real pleasure.” Gramophone

“This is clearly not the playing of a note-hungry lion, but of a cultivated and highly experienced musician who has the habit of getting right to the heart of the matter.” Julian Haylock, Classic CD

“The balance and ensemble playing is exemplary in this recording. The whole recording is most enjoyable and rewarding to listen to, and highlights some of the lesser-known works for cello” Catherine Milligan, AUSTA magazine

Formerly Principal Cellist with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Lorne Monroe began a 32-year tenure with the Philharmonic in 1964. Beginning his cello studies aged five in Winnipeg, he studied in London with Ivor James and with Piatigorsky at the Curtis Institute. He made over ninety solo appearances with the Philharmonic, in addition to a worldwide performance career.
