Never Before Released Solos from Emanuel Feuermann
The Feuermann Legacy

New York, NY — Carl Fischer Music announces the release of The Feuermann Legacy (BF93 - Score and Part - $39.99), a collection dedicated to the legacy of world renowned cellist Emanuel Feuermann. Comprised of six pieces often performed throughout his extensive career, these works are presented with updated fingerings and bowings by cellist pedagogue Marion Feldman.

Three are unique, never-before published arrangements of repertoire masterpieces made by the cellist himself. Included in this volume are copies of Feuermannís original manuscripts of the famous Polonaise Brilliante by Chopin, Handelís Adagio and Allegro, and Tartiniís Variations on a Theme of Corelli. The fingerings and bowings for Dvorákís Rondo were transcribed directly from a film of Feuermann performing. Also included are At the Fountain, Op. 20, No. 2 by Karl Davidoff and Hungarian Rhapsody, Op. 63 by Popper. Completing the collection are insightful interviews with Feuermannís granddaughter, Marika Hughes, an essay on interpretation penned by the cellist, and a collection of photographs showcasing performances and off-stage life. This well-rounded legacy is a welcome addition to every cellistís library, and a fitting tribute to one of the instrumentís liveliest virtuosos.

The Feuermann Legacy (BF93) is available now from Carl Fischer Music or from your favorite music retailer.

Marion Feldman is recognized as a leading performer and pedagogue of cello and chamber music. She is a member of the artist cello faculty in NYU Steinhardt School, Music and Performing Arts Professions.
