The great cellist, a founding member of the Beaux Arts Trio, died this morning at his home on Cape Cod.

Greenhouse retired from the trio in 1987 but his recordings are still ubiquitous. A friend of mine at the Eastman School of Music once put his warmly expansive solo from the opening of Brahms's Piano Trio No. 1 (which you can hear above) as the sole greeting on his answering machine. The playing, as he noted at the time, speaks for itself.
