Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    66:39
“these are affectionate performances, Gledhill making the most of Squire’s signature left-hand slides, throwing off the occasional fireworks (as in the miniature Hungarian rhapsody Tzig-Tzig) with delightful insouciance and strumming the pizzicato final chords of the Humoresque with a playful wink. Imai is a responsive partner and the pair have an unforced instinct for the ebb and flow of the slower pieces. In short, there’s a lot of enjoyment to be had here—and not just for cellists. “
- Richard Bratby, Gramophone

William Henry Squire was Britain’s leading cellist from the late 1890s to the late 1920s and was an important figure in the early recording era. Collected here are some of his delightful short pieces for cello, often written with specific audiences in mind, including his signature piece, Serenade, Op. 14 and his tribute to Dvořák Chansonnette, Op. 22. Performed by cellist Oliver Gledhill and pianist Tadashi Imai, five of the twenty pieces in this collection are receiving their first recordings.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
