"The Latvian-born Josef 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
MAGAZINE

"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."
