Following his recording of Mieczysław Weinberg’s 24 Cello Preludes, Op. 100 and Sonata for Solo Cello, No. 1, Op. 72 (8.572280), Latvian-born cellist Josef Feigelson here presents Weinberg’s three other sonatas for solo cello using the composer’s original manuscripts. The highly charged Second Sonata was written for and premiered by Valentin Berlinksy of the famous Borodin Quartet, who was also the recipient of the demanding Fourth. The lyrical Third Sonata with its echoes of Mahler and Prokofiev reaches a forcefully emotional climax.


Review By Robert R. Reilly,Catholic News Agency,October 2011

These are the world premiere recordings, originally issued on the Olympia label, of Sonatas Nos. 2, 3, and 4. The touchstone for sonatas for solo cello is obviously Bach’s work in the genre. Weinberg calls upon that tradition and enriches it. It would be safe to consider Feigelson’s performances as definitive.
