The greatest cellist of his time, and a man of proverbial generosity and charisma, Mstislav Rostropovich (1927-2007) remains an influential figure on the world stage. A master of traditional repertoire with a passion for new music, he numbered Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Britten among his many friends. His ardent humanitarianism led to years of exile from the Soviet Union, but he returned in 1990 to aid its transition to democracy. The extraordinary richness of Rostropovich’s life and art is expressed in this magnificent set. Live and studio recordings covering more than three centuries of music – from essential repertoire to fascinating rarities – are complemented by a revealing audio interview and a 200-page hardback book full of information, insight and rarely-seen photographs.

Deluxe Box Set

Cloth-bound box with embossed silver foil title and image
40 CDs & 3 DVDs in cardboard wallets
