It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: "Kabalevsky's Second Cello Concerto"...

His 1st is certainly more original.

His second, to my ear, borrows from just about everyone from Shosty to Prokofiev and even from his own 1st.

If you are looking for night and day differences in the presentation of his 1st, YoYo Ma w. Ormandy vs. Shafran w. Kabalevsky himself on the podium is about as much of a contrast in styles as one could hope to hear.

Still surprised that Rostropovich didn't seem to record it, or at least there is nothing I can find that indicates that he did.
