Notes and Editorial Reviews

"I don’t particularly admire Rostropovich playing Beethoven sonatas, but in this (to me) problematic concerto, the upfront, emotional playing of the cellist and of Oistrakh is welcome. It seems to enliven a piece that can seem something like a grand stunt. Richter plays beautifully, though with restraint."
-- Michael Ullman, FANFARE [1/2006]
