Gwyneth George

Born May 27 1920, died February 16 2016

Gwyneth George studied with Enrico Mainardi in Rome and with Paul Tortelier in Paris. In 1950 she made her debut at the Wigmore Hall.

Her only commercial disc, of cello sonatas by Rachmaninov and Shostakovich accompanied by Portugheis for the Unicorn label in 1971, proved popular with Gramophone’s critic, who described the Shostakovich as “the most searching account of the work I have met on LP” (Source: The Telegraph).
