Product Notes

'Jascha Silberstein, Live Performances' is a series of Compact Discs comprising historic, previously unreleased recordings. Discerning music lovers can now enjoy the artistry of this unique and important cellist. All recordings have been digitally remastered with great care to preserve the sound quality inherent in the analog tape masters while improving listenability. 'Obviously a man of first-class musical instincts.' - The Gramophone (London) 'Striking performance by the principal 'cellist, Jascha Silberstein... a first-rate, affectionate interpreter.' - The New York Times 'Virtuoso playing of the kind not heard since the days of Emanuel Feuermann.' - Boston Herald 'Silberstein performed with great brilliance... The richness of his tone, the suavity of his articulation, and the artistry of his phrasing were equally remarkable.' - Minnesota Daily 'One of the great masters of his instrument.' - The Jewish Post and Opinion 'This is fantastic 'cello playing... and outstanding performances.' - Kurt Moll Jascha Silberstein Celebrated cellist, raconteur, and gourmet, Jascha Silberstein was born in Poland in 1934 and raised in Switzerland. His mother taught him the piano starting at age 4, and at 10 he made his first public appearance playing Bach's D-minor Concerto. Soon thereafter, a record by the great Gregor Piatigorsky so impressed the youngster that he demanded lessons on the 'cello. A virtuoso talent emerged, and the boy went on to study with 'cellist Hans Lofer (aka Rudolf Hindemith) and, later, with the renowned Czech violinist Vasa Prihoda-both formidable interpreters of Romantic music. Following worldwide tours and orchestral experience in Munich and Nurnberg, he moved to the U.S. in 1962 to teach at the University of Texas. He played with the Boston Symphony Orchestra before joining the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra as principal solo 'cellist-a position he held from 1966 until his retirement in 1996. Mr. Silberstein has recorded albums for London Records and the Musical Heritage Society. He performs on a 1720 Goffriller 'cello, an instrument formerly owned by both Emanuel Feuermann and Joseph Schuster. Award-winning composer/arranger/producer/conductor, Claus Ogermann, recently wrote about Jascha Silberstein: 'It is high time our planet again hears great 'cello playing on the level of Emanuel Feuermann. Like Feuermann, Elman, Kreisler, and Heifetz, Silberstein is one in a century. Also excellent are the digital mastering and transfer to CD.'
