 A timeless recording November 21, 2011 By Donald P. (Maplewood, NJ) See All My Reviews "I've bought a number of versions of the Cello Suites performed by both well-known and lesser-known artists over the years, but Rostropovich's recording of the complete set is still my all-time favorite. A wonderful and moving rendition that everyone should discover." Report Abuse
