Program notes

A Legendary Concert: Rostropovich, Richter and Beethoven.

On August 30th 1964 at the Edinburgh Festival, Mstislav Rostropovich and Sviatoslav Richter took to the stage of the Usher Hall. Beethoven's complete Sonatas for Cello and Piano had seldom been played in their entirety in the world. The British premier was a century and a half late. The Third and Fifth Sonatas seen in this video are recorded by the BBC.
