Description

Gregor Piatigorsky (1903-1976) is a singular phenomenon among the cellists of the twentieth century as a person, pedagogue and musician. He was an ideal partner to the great instrumentalists of his time: Heifetz, Milstein, Horowitz, Rubinstein, Rachmaninov, Bartok and many others.

More than two generations of young musicians were introduced to the art of cello-playing by him, in cities like Berlin, Boston, Philadelphia, Tanglewood, Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore and Paris. He experienced the Russian
October Revolution as the first cellist in the Moscow Bolshoi Orchestra. He came to Leipzig via Warsaw, where he studied with Julius Klengel, and went through hard times before becoming first cellist under Furtwangler in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (1924-29).

For the first time Piatigorsky's fascinating playing during the most important stages of his career can be experienced comprehensively on the 10CDs documented in this box set.
