In March 2017, Mstislav Rostropovich would have turned 90. To celebrate this anniversary of one of the greatest cellists of all time, Deutsche Grammophon presents a truly encyclopaedic boxset which for the first time brings together “Slava’s” complete recordings for Decca, Philips, and the Yellow Label (as cellist, pianist & conductor). Also included are his recordings for Westminster/Melodija.

Highlights include the legendary 1968 Dvořák Cello Concerto with Herbert von Karajan, no less than three versions of the Schubert String Quintet (with Taneyev, Emerson & Melos) and famed recordings he made with Martha Argerich, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Benjamin Britten, Sviatoslav Richter and Rudolf Serkin; and perhaps what was his most fulfilled musical partnership – that with his wife, the great Russian soprano Galina Vishnevskaya, whom he accompanied as both conductor (Tosca, Pique Dame) and pianist.
