Back to rarities this week. A concert by the San Francisco Symphony led by its then-Music Director Edo DeWaart and featuring the legendary Russian Cellist Mstislav Rostropovich in music of Mozart, Dvorak, Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky.
No premiers or new works – pretty much meat-and-potatoes this week. But Rostropovich is more than worth the price of admission alone.
Here’s what’s on the players:
San Francisco Symphony
Edo DeWaart, cond.
Mstislav Rostropovich, Cello
Broadcast – Feb. 20, 1979
Part 1 (Top Player)
1. Mozart – Overture to Don Giovanni
2. Dvorak: Cello Concerto in B Minor – (Rostropovich, cello)
Part 2 (Bottom Player)
It should nicely qualify for Anti-Road Rage Wednesday.
Relax and enjoy.
