Sony Classical zaprasza do wysłuchania 36 płytowego zbioru nagrań Grigorija Piatigorskiego dokonanych dla RCA i Columbia Records w latach 1940 – 1968. Ten amerykański wiolonczelista pochodzenia rosyjskiego urodził się w rodzinie muzyków. W wieku ośmiu lat otrzymał stypendium, dzięki któremu rozpoczął naukę w Konserwatorium Moskiewskim, zaś w wieku 15 lat, po sprzeczce
z ojcem zerwał więzi rodzinne i został pierwszym wiolonczelistą orkiestry teatru operowego Bolszoj.
Po ucieczce przez Polskę zamieszkał w Niemczech gdzie odbywał studia u Juliusa Klengela w Lipsku i u Hugo Beckera w Berlinie. W roku 1924 Wilhelm Furtwängler przyjął go do orkiestry Filharmoników Berlińskich gdzie pełnił funkcje Pierwszego Wiolonczelisty do roku 1929. Występował w zespołach kameralnych, jego partnerami byli m. in : Jascha Heifetz, Natan Milstein, Artur Rubinstein, Siergiej Rachmaninow, Artur Schnabel i Vladimir Horowitz. Po przeniesieniu do Stanów Zjednoczonych rozpoczął działalność pedagogiczną na kilku uniwersytetach. W latach 1941-1949 kierował wydziałem wiolonczeli na Curtis Institute of Music w Filadelfii.
