Notes & Reviews:

First release on DVD! This valuable historic material from the Unitel catalogue, has not yet been available on DVD. It features Rostropovich playing three important pieces of the cello repertoire. The Portrait, produced by Arte, features the manifold talents of this truly charismatic artist: Rostropovich as a conductor, teacher and cellist with interview footage and comments about the great musician by Vengerov and others, combined with fantastic historic black & white footage!
