Notes and Editorial Reviews

“The Paganini of the 21st century” whose “art reaches the borders of supernatural”—these are some of the enthusiastic epithets that domestic & foreign music critics endowed upon Daniil Shafran, whose creative career, which spanned more than 60 years, made up a whole era in the Russian performing arts of the 20th century.

“…a man who was literally chained to his cello and who imagined no life without constant communication with music.” - Artyom Vagraftik
