Notes & Reviews:

Emanuel Feuermann is credited with bringing cello art into the 20th century. When he made his American debut in 1935, the hall was packed with fellow cellists, who had come to hear something extraordinary. Feuermann died at age 39 leaving a legacy of more than 70 recorded works.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
This is really a beautiful performance from everyone, including violinist Alexander Hilsberg and violist Samuel Lifschey. And Ormandy does a fine job of controlling the orchestra, with lots of rubato and a great deal of clarity and personality. Feuermann is at his best.
