Important new recordings by an early 20th Century master.

Steven Honigberg, heralded as a "sterling cellist" by the Washington Post, has emerged as one of the outstanding cellists of his generation. A member of the National Symphony Orchestra, he has been featured numerous times as soloist with that ensemble. He graduated from Juilliard where he studied with Leonard Rose. He has been the Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's chamber music series since its inception. Towards the end of his life Ernst Toch would sometimes refer to himself wistfully as "the world's most forgotten composer," and his melancholy joke betrayed a painful validity. Today, finally, things are beginning to change for this wonderful composer. What with the series of his complete symphonies on CPO and this great cello disc, just maybe Toch's fortunes are about to change. For those of us who grew up listening to his magnificent Third Symphony on Capital; let's hope so!

Review:
"Cellist Steven Honigberg... plays with commanding authority, beautiful tone, and expressive mastery. Albany's sonics are excellent—as clear and natural as one could wish..." (American Record Guide)
