In addition to playing, Feigelson will speak about the pieces, providing historical and musical insights.

Praised for his marvelously singing tone, effortless technique, and sincere, enlightening interpretations, Latvian-born cellist Yosif Feigelson has enjoyed a solo career spanning over four decades. Winner of the prestigious Tchaikovsky (1974) and J.S. Bach (1976) International Competitions as well as Avery Fisher Career Grant (1990), he toured throughout the United States, Europe, Russia, Israel and China. He made the widely-acclaimed New York début in 1988, when he stepped in at short notice to take the place of the ailing legend-violinist Nathan Milstein with the New York Chamber Symphony. His 1996 performance of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto with the Detroit Symphony under Neeme Järvi was recorded for Eurobroadcast and heard on radio stations all over the world.
