Gregor Piatigorsky: The Life and Career of the Virtuoso Cellist by Terry King

An Intimate Portrait of Gregor Piatigorsky, the Cellist’s Cellist. . McFarland, $45.

Professionally, Gregor Piatigorsky deferred to chamber-music collaborator Jascha Heifetz, but in private he deferred to no one. As a cellist, Piatigorsky’s ability to deliver on the world’s classical-music stages with the greatest of his contemporaries led him to survive and triumph during perilous times battered by a world war. He was a proud and good man with a god-given gift.

In author, educator, and cellist Terry King, Piatigorsky’s protégé and friend, who now teaches at the Hartt School at the University of Hartford and at the Longy School of Music, Piatigorsky finds the perfect champion: a musician who captures the full rich panoply of the great man’s life and the poetry of his cello playing, along with his musical insights, teaching methods and musical guidelines, landmarks, and thoughts about (among other things) critics.
