Vale Mstislav Rostropovich

April 28, 2007

The great Russian master of the cello has died, aged 80.

Let ‘Slava’s’ sublime talent speak for itself in one of Bach’s great pieces for solo cello. This was music that Rostropovich single-handedly rescued from obscurity and restored to its rightful position at the top of the cellist’s repertoire.
