GREGOR PIATIGORSKY - GREGOR PIATIGORSKY - THE ART OF THE CELLO - THE COMPLETE RCA AND COLUMBIA ALBUM COLLECTION (36CD)

He has been called the greatest string player of all time. His playing, which brought tears to the eyes of the immortal FritzKreisler, was noted for its exceptional technical control and wide range of expression. When Richard Strauss heard GregorPiatigorskyperform with the Berlin Philharmonic, he exclaimed, “Finally I have heard my Don Quixote as I imagined him.” Sony Classical is pleased to announce a definitive 36-CD set collecting Piatigorsky’scelebrated RCA and American Columbia recordings for the first time in a single edition. Most of the performances on the first five discs, recorded between 1940 and 1947 have never before been transferred from the original analogue master discs and tapes for release on CD. For this release, 48 recordings have been transferred for the first time from the original analogmaster discs and tapes using 24 bit / 192 kHz technology, more than 20 works make their first appearance on CD in this edition. Born in 1903 in what is now Dnipro, Ukraine, Piatigorskystudied with his father before entering the Moscow Conservatory. When only 15, he was invited to join Moscow’s foremost string quartet, the Lenin Quartet, and the same year he was appointed principal cellist at the Bolshoi. In 1921, he left the USSR to study in Leipzig with the renowned Julius Klengel, and in 1924 Furtwänglerengaged him as principal cellist of the Berlin Philharmonic. A few years later, the cellist moved on to become a concert soloist.
