Biography

Throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, cellist Janos Starker displayed a talent for musical interpretation that brought him recognition as one of the finest virtuosos of his time. In 1957 connoisseurs and critics concurred that his recording of the complete Bach cello suites established a new standard of performance for those pieces. Later, in March of 1995, a semi-retired Starker put to tape his fifth separate recording of the Bach suites, an unprecedented feat for any string player. He further upheld an undying devotion to music education and brought a new modesty to the classical musician’s art with his confident yet unassuming stance during performance.
