Nicholas Anderson Discography, 11 May 2003 [cached]
And in the San Francisco Chronicle, Robert Commanday described her as "a master teacher whose contribution in musical and human terms has been incalculable."During her 60-year career, she was widely known to be the dean of cello teachers in the San Francisco Bay Area, as the distinguished Professor of Cello at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Stanford University, San Francisco State University, the University of California at Berkeley, and Mills College.She was better known at the highest levels of the profession than the lower ones, and was a respected personal friend of Casals, Piatigorsky, Rostropovich, Fournier, Rose, Nelsova, Yo-Yo Ma, and countless others.She was responsible for having brought Casals to Berkeley for his nationally televised master classes in the early 1960's.In 1977 she was a judge for the prestigious Naumburg competition.The University of Indiana at Bloomington honored her with the title of Grande Dame du Violoncelle, and the American String Teacher Association presented her with their Distinguished Service Award.She was the teacher of Paul Tobias, Bonnie Hampton, Irene Sharp, and Nicholas Anderson, and was a guiding light for generations of cellists.Her son, the late Galen Rowell, was an internationally acclaimed nature photographer and author.However, apart from these and so many other distinctions, the fascinating story of how she developed her unique insight into cello-playing is relatively little-known.
