Notes & Reviews:

Mstislav Rostropovich was renowned not only as one of the great instrumentalists of the 20th c., but also as an outspoken champion of artistic freedom in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. Often credited as the man who enriched the standard cello repertoire more than any cellist before, Rostropovich was noted for his commanding technique and intense, visionary playing. He vast repertoire included works written for him by some of the era's greatest composers. His bestselling accounts of the Bach Suites for Unaccompanied Cello illuminate the works' structural logic and inner spirituality.
