Notes & Reviews:

"It appears that the 28-year-old cellist was a more emotive Bach interpreter than his older self, employing more dynamic hairpins, heavier, more legato-oriented articulation, generally slower tempos, and a stronger emphasis on singing than dancing... The bottom line is that Rostropovich's supreme technical command and communicative authority were firmly established at a young age, and are all the more impressive when you consider that these most likely are live, unedited transmissions." -Classics Today

When this live recording was made in 1955 at the Prague Spring Festival, Rostropovich was 28 years of age. He astounded the audience with his youthful verve and surprising artistic maturity.

A sensational, newly discovered 1955 Rostropovich recording of the Bach Cello Suites.
