"The Latvian-born Yosif Feigelson gives an impassioned performance, making
a convincing narrative - essential in a work for solo cello. He generates a fine
sense of line and characterisation with a dose of panache to spice up
proceedings. Well worth exploration."
THE STRAD
"The 24 Preludes is a remarkably impressive and entertaining piece. What
holds the forefront of the listeners attention is a virtuoso variety of
invention, some of it witty, some of it grave and with baroque overtones.
The performances are outstanding!"
GRAMMOPHONE
"These works for solo cello reveal a composer of real gifts,
strong-mindedness and unshakable craft.   
The recasting of the instrument's character is unflaggingly imaginative.
Feigelson plays all this program with beautiful tone, obvious commitment
and phrasing that ranges from elegant to slashingly expressionist,
depending on the demands of the music. The recording sound is superb."
