Notes & Reviews:

"The real value of this tribute resides on Disc 2: a mini-recital of delightful mono recordings from 1956, all but one of which are receiving their first CD release. Rostropovich is featured with his long-time accompanist, Alexander Dedyukhin, in Rachmaninov's Cello Sonata, Chopin's Polonaise brilliante, and transcriptions of Schumann, Rachmaninov, and Schubert... For those who don't already own these recordings, this two-fer disc is an invaluable document of one of the century's greatest living artists." -Classics Today (10/8)
