Notes & Reviews:

"Given that box sets are too often thrown together in a last cavalier attempt to get mileage from back catalog, it's a pleasure to find one that has rhyme and reason, assembling a program that would be hard for the buyer to find on his or her own and offering a real tribute to a beloved figure... A set like this is a good way to get a handle on Rostropovich's contributions to musical life...There's not another musician alive, or even dead, who could have filled all the shoes Rostropovich effortlessly wore -- and who could have stamped his warm, irrepressible personality onto almost everything he did. Let others find fault with individual passages; this box is about the broad sweep of Rostropovich's work, and that perspective brings home his greatness." -All Music
