His solo CD on Albany Records “Rider on The Plains” featuring Virgil Thomson’s Cello Concerto was nominated for a 2008 Grammy award for producer Blanton Alspaugh (producer of the year) and was hailed as an “excellent recording…the concerto sounds exhilarating in this bracing and confident performance” by the NY Times. Following his Celebrity Series debut, the Boston Globe wrote “Emmanuel Feldman was superb in the Bach Solo Suites."
He has premiered new works by Harbison, Danielpour, Kernis, and Schuller among others. Co-founder of Cello e Basso with bassist Pascale Delache-Feldman, they were called “a musical Lewis and Clark” by NPR’s Ron Schacter. In 2013 he released his “Our American Roots” CD on the Delos label with pianist Joy Cline Phinney.
