Feldman’s big sound flowed authoritatively, communicating startling expressive power and control. With ardor and elegance, Feldman’s warm, handsome tone was flavored with the delectable ingredients of conviction and passion.” — The Wellesley Townsman
 
The foregoing is typical of the effusive critical response to Emmanuel Feldman’s marvelous cello artistry, wherever he unleashes it. In Our American Roots – his first recording for Delos – Feldman applies his prodigious talent and skill to an all-American program of music for cello and piano – to include a pair of rarely heard (and recorded) cello sonatas by Samuel Barber and George Walker. The remainder of the program consists of winning arrangements of beloved musical Americana: arias from George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and his Preludes, as well as two movements from Aaron Copland’s ballet score Billy the Kid.
 
Feldman, a Curtis graduate, went on to study at the Paris Conservatoire Supérieur on scholarship before embarking on a singularly successful career encompassing solo recitals, chamber performances and concerto appearances with leading orchestras. He also teaches with distinction at Tufts University, Brown University and the New England Conservatory. Emmanuel, with the inspired and vibrant collaboration of piano sorceress Joy Cline Phinney, delivers his program with silky-smooth, yet robust tone and vivid musical colors, while alternating between spunky spirit and supremely soulful interpretive depth.
 
A varied program of seldom-heard American cello sonatas and well-crafted arrangements of beloved musical Americana
Playing of gorgeous tone and color, with (by turns) soulful and spirited interpretations
Superb collaboration from brilliant pianist Joy Cline Phinney

"This program combines varied aspects of American music in a convincing manner... a well-played program. The sound is excellent ..."

David Moore - Amercan Record Guide - September/October 2013


 "... There’s no point in playing this music primly, and Feldman and phinney don’t: they let it all hang out, so to speak... The cello and piano are reproduced beautifully by the recording ... pure enjoyment, but recognising and supporting Walker’s work as a composer is the best reason for aquiring this CD and I suggest you do so without further delay!."

Raymond S Tuttle - International Record Review - September 2013
