Notes & Reviews:
"Could anyone but Mstislav Rostropovich get away with kissing the score at the end of a concert?... but it only added to the adulation that greeted the conductor at the close of Shostakovich's 8th Symphony. Rostropovich is a man who lived this symphony long before he started conducting it. At each testing moment the players of the LSO rose to matchless heights. This is an orchestra at the very top of its form." - The Times
