Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Rostropovich's resonant tone, coupled with sprightly tempi that serve to convey the melodic line, reveal the works as never before. EMI's recording is also nothing short of perfect." -jsbach.org"It was not until 1991, when he was 63, that he decided to record all six of the Bach Suites, a set he considered the crowning glory of the instrument's literature. It was a project over which he maintained complete control. He chose the site, the Basilique Sainte-Madeleine, in the Burgundian village of Vezelay, France, because he considered the church's acoustics perfect and the simplicity of its architecture inspiring. He produced and edited the recordings himself and paid for the sessions so that if he were dissatisfied, he would be free to destroy the tapes. As it turned out, he was pleased with the results, which were released on CD and video in 1995. " -The New York Times
