Emanuel Feuermann by Annette Morreau

The meteoric career of the Austrian cellist Emanuel Feuermann ended with his sudden and tragic death in 1942, aged only thirty-nine. A brilliant soloist and chamber performer, many expected him to inherit from Pablo Casals the reputation of the greatest cellist of all time. The trio he formed with Jasha Heifetz and Artur Rubinstein was considered the leading chamber ensemble in the world. This new biography of Feuermann—a rich combination of documentary and oral history and gripping narrative—discusses his life, work, and legacy and awards him the place in musical history that he was denied by his early death.

Born one hundred years ago in a humble Galician shtetl, Feuermann grew to maturity in a tumultuous era. Annette Morreau gives an account of the world wars, politics, music culture, and recording history that form the context of his achievements. She also provides invaluable detail about Feuermann’s life, drawing on interviews and private letters of family, colleagues, students, and friends, as well as on a wealth of first-hand recollections from some of the most distinguished musicians of the twentieth century. Morreau describes Feuermann’s unique style of playing, basing her assessments on the many surviving recordings he made and on contemporary press reviews gathered worldwide.

So that readers can judge Feuermann's extraordinary talent for themselves, a digital download with examples of his performances is included with the ebook.
