Product Description

“János Starker was a true aristocrat of the cello…an impeccable virtuoso with more than 5,000 concerts and 160 recordings to his name” The Guardian UK

One of many celebrated artists on the Mercury Living Presence label, this box is a collection of some of the finest recordings made by the master cellist Janos Starker.
This is a valuable cross-section of key cello works in distinguished performances. From Bach’s cornerstone solo suites, to some lesser known Italian Sonatas, the two classic Brahms sonatas, and three concertos by Schumann, Dvorák, Lalo and Saint-Saëns. The accompanying booklet includes three separate elements – an overview on Starker’s contribution to recording, Starker’s own notes on recording and the original album essays.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
expertly transferred to make the most of the original recording. particularly superb Bach. rest also excellent as i expected. what an artist - he was not released much in New Zealand when originally recorded, so this box is a real tribute. are there any recordings of his master classes? i believe i heard one on the radio many years ago. would be worth releasing.
