Album Notes
Anthony Elliott is in great demand as a soloist, chamber music performer, conductor, and teacher. Following his victory in the Emanuel Feuermann International Cello Competition in 1987, Henry Roth wrote in Strad Magazine "His emotional communication is often profound, and his glittering silvery tone captivates the ear". Following quickly on the heels of the competition victory was a highly successful New York debut in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.

A frequent guest soloist with major orchestras, Anthony Elliott has appeared with such orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, the Minnesota Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony, the Vancouver Symphony, and the CBC Toronto Orchestra. His performances have been recorded and broadcast on radio and television across the United States and Canada. He has recorded for Koch, Collins Classics, Vox and Equilibrium Records. His CD recording of sonatas by Kabalevsky, Martinu and Shostakovich received a rave review from Strad Magazine, and was chosen as a "Best Buy" by the Houston Post. Recent releases include the Cello Sonata Opus 11 of Paul Hindemith with pianist Anton Nel, the Lamentations Suite for Solo Cello by Coleridge Taylor Perkinson, French Music for Cello and Piano, and music for Cello and Piano by Sergei Rachmaninoff.

Anthony Elliott's studies were with two legendary figures of the cello, Janos Starker and Frank Miller. Presently, he is Professor of Music at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He performs on the magnificent "Ex Duke of Edinburgh" Tecchler Cello, made in Rome, Italy in 1703.

Dr. Toni-Marie Montgomery is Dean of the School of Music at Northwestern University. Previously she served as Dean of the School of Fine Arts at the University of Kansas, Director of the School of Music at Arizona State University, Assistant Dean of the School of the Arts at the University of Connecticut, and Artistic Director of the Music Performance Institute at Western Michigan University.

In April of 1984, Toni-Marie Montgomery became the second recipient of the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in piano chamber music and accompanying from the University of Michigan. She received the Master of Music degree from the University of Michigan in 1981, and graduated magna cum laude from the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts in 1980.

Among her performances are guest appearances with the University of Connecticut Symphony Orchestra, the Johns Hopkins Symphony, the Detroit Metropolitan Orchestra in Orchestra Hall, and the Landsdowne Pennsylvania Orchestra. She has performed at the Free Library of Philadelphia, the Austrian Institute, New York City, the Academy of Music Recital Hall (Philadelphia), and at the American Conservatory in Fountainbleau, France. Recent performances include recitals in Salzburg, Austria, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Honolulu, Hawaii.

Dr. Montgomery is a member of the Black Music Repertory Ensemble of Columbia College of Chicago. This 15 member ensemble specializes in performing works by black composers, and promotes appreciation for the black musical heritage.
