High regard for Feuermann is always unanimous: "A talent of the century" (Jascha Heifetz), "The greatest cellist of all time" (Arthur Rubinstein). For the first time in this set of 10 CDs, recordings range from these Berlin debuts to the last press test (V. Herbert). There were still no vinyl records or cassettes, but the fragile shellac disc with a playing time of three to seven minutes per side. Entire concerts had to be spread over several discs, nothing could be changed or repaired. That's why this set only presents original Live. Feuermann was a prodigy. He made his debut in Vienna at the age of 11 (Brahms double concerto), was appointed professor at the Cologne Conservatory at the age of 16 and, ten years later, Professor at the Hochschule Berlin. As a Jew, he was expelled by the Nazis in 1933, performing in Europe, Japan (1934 and 36) and the United States, where he finally settled in 1938.
