The Cello Concerto by Antonio Dvorak represents the zenith of every cellist’s objectives. If you can master this piece, you have arrived as a professional musician. The legendary cellist Mstislav Rostropovich shows us on this recording how it is done:
Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104
Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 33
Performed by Mstislav Rostropovich (cello), with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Carlo Maria Giulini conducting.
Gramophone Magazine wrote:
“Rostropovich, the master cellist, has a deep understanding of the Dvořák Concerto. Here his playing is colored by the grace of Giulini’s interpretation and by the beautifully lyrical accompaniment.”
