Notes & Reviews:

To celebrate the 85th anniversary of the Russian maestro's birth on 27 March 2012, Decca have collated all the recordings he made for Decca and Philips into one stunning 5CD box set. A must not only for students of the cello, but also for all who appreciate exemplary musicianship.
