Notes & Reviews:

Compared to other great cellists, Janos Starker doesn't have the traditional "touch", the great volume of sound that swells and fades away, always exerting a powerful psychological effect on the listener. He is reserved, apparently cold, but in reality he's completely concentrated on himself and on his work. spiritually, Starker somewhat resembles Shostakovich and for this reason is so successful at balancing a suffering interior and an exterior that takes refuge in somesaults and sneets.
