In Reply to: RE: "Kabalevsky's Second Cello Concerto"... posted by Ivan303 on June 17, 2017 at 07:41:10
Perhaps for political rather then musical reasons that Rostropovich chose not to record Kabalevsky.
And he worked with Kabalevsky on 'finishing' that Prokofiev piece?
Very curious to know the reason. Granted, Kabalevsky's 1st. Cello Concerto is an early piece, simple but I think with charm. Later Kabalevsky seems to have come under the influence of other composers to the point of a certain loss of originality?
Still, surprised Rostropovich does not seem to have ever recorded it.
Wonder if he ever played it in concert?
