Rostropovich and Richter

I credit my youngest sister for introducing me to these guys playing this piece, but it might have been my father. I’ve listened to several different musicians playing this, and none matches these two. None.

The vid starts in the middle, but it’s still worth watching Rostropovich make the cello weep.

    That was thoroughly enjoyable!

    Rostropovich was a huge influence on Tomas Ulrich, a jazz cellist in NYC. You might find his work interesting. Clips on you tube. Of course.
