* Mstislav Rostropovich is internationally acclaimed and acknowledged as the world's greatest living cellist. He has given countless memorable performances and is noted for his commanding technique and intense, visionary playing.

* Haydn Cello Concertos are the most significant works for the instrument from the Classical period.

* They are beguiling works, and Rostropovich in this famous recording made at Henry Wood Hall, London in 1975 with the cellist himself also directing the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, presents them as the classic Haydn works we now know them to be.

* Complemented by Haydn’s most famous Piano Concerto - Sir Neville Marriner conducting the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Homero Francesch, piano.

* Many recordings and concerts tours with its founder Sir Neville Marriner have made the Academy of St Martin in the Fields synonymous with lively, precise and vigorous interpretations of 18th-century music.
