Mstislav Rostropovich

Posted by:

45 years ago Mstislav Rostropovich, perhaps one of the greatest and most innovative cellists in history, graced the stage of Shriver Hall Concert Series in a recital that included Bach's third suite for solo cello, Brahms' E-Minor cello sonata, and Britten's C-Major Sonata. While scouring youtube for inspiring performances, I came across this 90 minute documentary on the life and legend of Slava. Produced by the BBC, the film is chock full of amazing performance, interesting facts, and moving anecdotes - its well worth watching and we hope you enjoy!
