Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Declared by Tchaikovsky as "The Czar of Cellists",
Latvian born cellist Karl Davidoff (1838 – 1889) is regarded as the preeminent
cellist of the nineteenth century. In 1876, Davidoff was awarded the position
of Director of St. Petersburg Conservatory, for which Tchaikovsky was another
candidate. Tragedy soon befell, when in January 1889, he suddenly fell ill
during one of his performances, and died a few days later at the age of fifty.
