From Daniel Silva, the internationally acclaimed #1 New York Times bestselling author, comes a timely and explosive new thriller featuring art restorer and legendary spy Gabriel Allon. Viktor Orlov had a longstanding appointment with death. Once Russia’s richest man, he now resides in splendid exile in London, where he has waged a tireless crusade against the authoritarian kleptocrats who have seized control of the Kremlin. His mansion in Chelsea’s exclusive Cheyne Walk is one of the most heavily protected private dwellings in London. Yet somehow, on a rainy summer evening, in the midst of a global pandemic, Russia’s vengeful president finally manages to cross Orlov’s name off his kill list. Before him was the receiver from his landline telephone, a half-drunk glass of red wine, and a stack of documents.… The documents are contaminated with a deadly nerve agent. The Metropolitan Police determine that they were delivered to Orlov’s home by one of his employees, a prominent investigative reporter from the anti-Kremlin Moskovskaya Gazeta. And when the reporter slips from London hours after the killing, MI6 concludes she is a Moscow Center assassin who has cunningly penetrated Orlov’s formidable defenses. But Gabriel Allon, who owes his very life to Viktor Orlov, believes his friends in British intelligence are dangerously mistaken. His desperate search for the truth will take him from London to Amsterdam and eventually to Geneva, where a private intelligence service controlled by a childhood friend of the Russian president is using KGB-style “active measures” to undermine the West from within. Known as the Haydn Group, the unit is plotting an unspeakable act of violence that will plunge an already divided America into chaos and leave Russia unchallenged. Only Gabriel Allon, with the help of a brilliant young woman employed by the world’s dirtiest bank, can stop it. Elegant and sophisticated, provocative and daring, The Cellist explores one of the preeminent threats facing the West today—the corrupting influence of dirty money wielded by a revanchist and reckless Russia. It is at once a novel of hope and a stark warning about the fragile state of democracy. And it proves once again why Daniel Silva is regarded as his generation’s finest writer of suspense and international intrigue.

Born in 1885 in Porto, Portugal, to a middle-class musical family, Guilhermina Suggia began playing cello at the age of five. A child prodigy, she was already a seasoned performer when she won a scholarship to study with Julius Klengel in Leipzig at the age of sixteen. Suggia lived in Paris with fellow cellist Pablo Casals for several years before World War I, in a professional and personal partnership that was as stormy as it was unconventional. When they separated Suggia moved to London, where she built a spectacularly successful solo career. Suggia's virtuosity and musicianship, along with the magnificent style and stage presence famously captured in Augustus John's portrait, made her one of the most sought-after concert artists of her day. In 1927 she married Dr Josasimiro Carteado Mena and settled down to a comfortable life divided between Portugal and England. Throughout the 1930s, Suggia remained one of the most respected musicians in Europe. She partnered on stage with many famous instrumentalists and conductors and completed numerous BBC broadcasts. The war years kept her at home in Portugal, where she focused on teaching, but she returned to England directly after the war and resumed performing. When Suggia died in 1950, her will provided for the establishment of several scholarship funds for young cellists, including England's prestigious Suggia Gift. Mercier's study of Suggia's letters and other writings reveal an intelligent, warm and generous character; an artist who was enormously dedicated, knowledgeable and self-disciplined. Suggia was one of the first women to make a career of playing the cello at a time when prejudice against women playing this traditionally 'masculine' instrument was still strong. A role model for many other musicians, she was herself a fearless pioneer.

ABSTRACT: In the late eighteenth century the violoncello began its ascent toward acceptance as a solo, virtuosic instrument equal to the violin. Much of this ascent was due to the tradition of cellist-composers: virtuoso performers who composed works for the cello that served to showcase the versatility of the instrument. These cellist-composers built a repertoire for the instrument, and without their influence, modern cello performance and pedagogy would not be the same. However, these great artists are mostly forgotten because their music has fallen out of style. Yet the pieces they wrote, both original and transcribed, provided generations of cellists with guides to technique and musicality that are missing today. It is important that cellists, both as performers and teachers strive to reintroduce these works into the studios and recital halls so that cellists of all levels can continue to build upon a tradition that created the field to which they aspire. The purpose of this treatise is to highlight the works of one of the preeminent cellist-composers, Georg Goltermann. The processes used will firstly be an in-depth study of his life and secondly, the creation of an annotated bibliography of his cello works, including all pertinent publication and location information. The goal of this research is to create a catalog of Georg Goltermann's works and an easy-to-use resource for cellists. Through this guide, both teachers and performers alike can familiarize themselves with the entirety of the works of Georg Goltermann and thus expand the repertoire available to teachers seeking to guide cellists of all ability levels toward a more virtuosic technique and musicality. After a brief introduction, Chapter Two will discuss the rise of the cellist-composer in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This overview will lead to a discussion in Chapter Three concerning the development of the modern bow and violoncello as well as progress in score-writing consistency. Finally, Chapter Four will finish the historical discussion on cellist-composers with a look at how the cellist-composer lost fame and importance and diminished into a forgotten field. Chapter Five will delve into the life of Georg Goltermann with a discussion of his life, his works and his legacy. Chapter Six will conclude the main text of the treatise with an assessment of the life and works of Georg Goltermann, and their importance today. After the conclusion, two catalogs are attached to this treatise. The first is an annotated bibliography of the violoncello works of Georg Goltermann, and the second, is a complete works list. The annotated bibliography lists all of Georg Goltermann's works that include violoncello either in a solo or accompanimental role. The bibliography is listed by opus number and contains the work title, key, movement titles, instrumentation, publication information and where the scores can be found today. After the main annotated bibliography, the author has included two bibliographies of Goltermann's cello works organized by instrumentation and by genre. The complete works list is self-explanatory, but gives the reader a larger picture of Goltermann's compositional output.
