Mstislav Rostropovich Demonstrating Bad Table Manners

Mstislav Rostropovich demonstrating bad table manners.

One may forgive the man anything given his recording of the Bach Cello Suites.

Rostropovich waited until late in life to record the Bach Cello Suites. Rostropovich’s Bach, in my estimation, is superior to the Bach of Pablo Casals. I return to Rostropovich’s Bach over and over and over; I think it is sublime.
