His own albums have found him moving from artful solo violin sessions like 1995’s Music for Violin Alone to challenging small group dates like 2006’s What Exit? with John Taylor. Feldman has collaborated regularly with his wife, pianist Sylvie Courvoisier, releasing a bevy of sophisticated classical- and jazz-informed albums, including 2006’s Malphas: Book of Angels, Vol. 3 and 2019’s Time Gone Out.
