Hailed by Fanfare Magazine as “in the elite of today’s concert cellists” (Sept/Oct 2006), Nancy Green is an international recording artist, known for her highly acclaimed CDs of previously unrecorded works as well as staples of the cello repertoire. Ms. Green was the first cellist to record the complete Hungarian Dances of Brahms arranged by Piatti, Donald Francis Tovey’s sonata for solo cello, the complete works for cello and piano of Robert Fuchs, Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco and Arensky, among others. Her numerous CDs are broadcast frequently both in the United States and abroad and her performances have earned rave reviews internationally. Ms. Green’s Tovey/Kodaly solo disc was chosen by Fanfare Magazine as among the top recordings of the year and reviews have likened her to great cellists such as Mstislav Rastropovich, Yo-Yo Ma, and Jacqueline du Pre.
Green has performed extensively on the concert stage and for radio and television in the United States, Europe, and the Far East. She has appeared as soloist in venues such as Boston’s Symphony Hall, New York’s Alice Tully Hall, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Munich’s Herkulessaal, Windsor Castle, and London’s Wigmore Hall as well as major concert halls in Shanghai, Taipei, and Seoul.
Nancy Green studied at the Juilliard School with Leonard Rose and Lynn Harrell and performed in the master classes of Mstislav Rostropovich. She made her concerto debut in New York playing Dvorak concerto at Lincoln Center, was spotlighted as a Young Artist of the Year by Musical America and won prizes and awards including the Concert Artists Guild Award which sponsored her first New York recital. After receiving a Rockefeller grant for study in London with Jacqueline du Pre, she worked with Johannes Goritzki in Dusseldorf, Germany where she was winner of the Schmolz-Bickenbach Award.
