Notes & Reviews:

As he celebrates his 80th birthday year in 2007, Deutsche Grammophon presents a double album of Rostropovich's early recordings from the1950s, including two concertos with which he is intimately associated and a sequence of brilliant and evocative encores. Many are first-time releases on CD.
