Praised around the world for his outstanding mastery, dubbed by one of the critics ”
a Caruso of the Cello”, Yosif Feigelson enjoys over three decades
of a distinguished solo career. Former student of two great Russian
masters: Rostropovich and Gutman, he is as much dedicated to bringing
forward new music as his former mentors. His unique recordings of works
for solo cello by M. Weinberg will be re-issued by Naxos in 2010.
