Lost music April 29, 2007Posted by dorigo in Art, music, news.
We all lose when an artist of the caliber of Mstislav Rostropovich passes away. He was 80, and played the Cello like nobody. The Cello is a wonderful instrument, one that very few artists get to master to perfection. But Rostropovich was not only a Cello player: he was a composer and a director of Orchestra. And an opposer of the regime, who fled Russia in 1974.
