 Update me on new releases by Squire

William Henry Squire (01/01/1871 - 01/01/1963)

W.H. Squire remains one of the most enduringly significant of English cellists, whose influence was wide due to his teaching activities. Educated initially at Kingsbridge Grammar School in Devon, Squire went to London’s Royal College of Music on a scholarship, receiving cello tuition from Edward Howell and studying composition with Hubert Parry and Charles Stanford, both lynchpins of the British musical ‘renaissance’. Many of Squire’s compositions, mainly for the cello (including Danse Rustique, Bourrée, Tarantella and Humoresque), remain part of the repertoire. He also composed a cello concerto, two operettas and Twelve Easy Pieces for student cellists. Amongst his lighter, popular works were Harlequinade, Consolation, Danse Orientale, a Larghetto in D, and Tzig- Tzig. He was also the dedicatee of Fauré’s Sicilienne in an arrangement for cello and piano.
