 Lovely playing Starker June 4, 2013 By Chris M. (Decatur, GA) See All My Reviews "Given that there are already extensive reviews of this recording, I don't have much to add. In my earlier attempts to enjoy Starker's cello style, I found him dry, so the most remarkable thing about this recording was how much I enjoyed his playing and that of Katchen and Suk." Report Abuse
