Mstislav Rostropovich 1927-2007 RIP

Considered to be one of the greatest cellists of the twentieth century as well as stern critic of the Soviet system. Farewell Maestro.

Try this (really something, even on my lousy computer sound system!) and if that wets your appetite look here.

Everything in the known universe tagged Rostropovich.

Admittedly, a sound system like yours may dampen my enthusiam for cello music, but I would rather be honed to a sharper awareness of a great talent, thank you very much.
