Arnold Trowell c.1898

The virtuoso Arnold Trowell is known to many cellists. A fascinating, bohemian figure, who was resident in London for many years, he was greatly admired – and loved – by the author Katherine Mansfield. He returned to his home country, New Zealand, London towards the end of his life. He is known for his pedagogical music, but he also composed a large number of other works for cello and piano. Pianist Kathryn Mosley – another New Zealander – and I are performing some of these works at a Katherine Mansfield conference in June, among other places. See Performances 2014.
