Issue Cover

Gramophone  |  March 2017  

Today, it’s hard to imagine how little prominence the cello enjoyed as a solo instrument just a century ago. When the first cellist to emerge as a ‘20th-century superstar’, Pablo Casals, listed his repertoire in 1910, he named just seven concertos for cello and orchestra. That number would more than double during Casals’s lifetime, but it was not he who would raise the cello to new heights to sit proudly alongside the violin and the piano as a genuine equal. .. read more The elevation of the instrument to the standing it now enjoys is almost entirely the achievement of another remarkable man. Mstislav ‘Slava’ Rostropovich, who was born in Baku ninety years ago and died in Moscow eighty years and one month later. Through an inspired, even divine, admixture of charisma and charm, energy and determination, innate musicianship and sheer technical ability, this cellist changed not only music but the world.  read less
