Latvian-born cellist Josef (Yosif) Feigelson has enjoyed a solo career spanning over three decades. Born to musician parents, he began playing the cello at the age of six, studying under Don Yaffe at the Darzin Music School in Riga. In 1970 he won First Prize at the Concertino Prague International Competition and became a pupil of Mstislav Rostropovich at the Moscow Conservatory, continuing his studies with Natalia Gutman. Winner of the prestigious Tchaikovsky (1974) and J.S. Bach (1976) International Competitions, he toured throughout the former Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc countries. In 1987 he became an American citizen, making his New York début in 1988, when he stepped in at short notice to take the place of the ailing violinist Nathan Milstein with the New York Chamber Symphony. He has gone on to appear with leading orchestras throughout the United States and across Europe. His recordings have been released on Olympia, Panton, Essay and Melodiya labels, and his 1996 performance of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto with the Detroit Symphony under Neeme Järvi was recorded for Eurobroadcast and heard on radio stations around the world. In 1990 he received a prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and has done much to bring to light neglected cello repertoire.
