Notes & Reviews:

Mstislav Rostropovich is internationally acclaimed and acknowledged as the world's greatest living cellist. He has given countless memorable performances and is noted for his commanding technique and intense, visionary playing. Haydn Cello Concertos are the most significant works for the instrument from the Classical period. They are beguiling works, and Rostropovich in this famous recording made at Henry Wood Hall, London in 1975 with the cellist himself also directing the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, presents them as the classic Haydn works we now know them to be. "His diversity of color and his mastery of every problem [make] him one of the greatest musicians of the present time. He performs in a wonderfully convincing manner." -The New York Times
