Product description

Product Description

From the Daily Telegraph 28-04-07: ‘Mstislav Rostropovich, the cellist, conductor and pianist who died at age 80 in 2007, was generally regarded as the greatest, and was certainly the most famous, cellist since Pablo Casals.
Works were written for him by Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Britten, Lutoslawski, Bliss and others, all of whom were his friends. He took up conducting when he was 33 and made a parallel career on the rostrum in the opera house and the concert-hall.
In 1948 he invited Prokofiev to one of his recitals, at which he played the composer's cello concerto.
This work had been a failure at its first performance in 1939. Prokofiev was so impressed by the young cellist's artistry that he revised the concerto and then converted it into the Sinfonia Concertante, dedicating it to Rostropovich, who gave the first performance in February 1952 with Sviatoslav Richter conducting.
The recital at which Rostropovich had played the concerto occurred 12 days before the infamous Andrei Zhdanov, who ran Stalin's cultural policy, denounced Shostakovich and Prokofiev for their failure to reflect "Soviet realism" in their music.’
