Movie Reviews

Two Masters at the Height of their Powers
D. Gollaher | La Jolla | 11/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Despite his enormous discography, there's not a very rich visual record of Richter. He and Rostropovich excelled in concert performance, and these DVDs convey their intensity playing some of the best music ever written for the cello. Richter once said in an interview that Beethoven is a matter of life and death, and that feeling comes through quite clearly here. There's a bonus solo piano reading of Mendelssohn's Variations Serieuses, Op. 54, that is dazzling."
Immaculate

"Sublime. Nothing else could properly describe this union of giants."
Stunning!
X. Hua | San Diego, CA | 05/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD captured two masters at their prime. It took my breath away! I own CDs of these sonatas played by Casals/Serkin. But I rate Rostropovich/Ritcher higher. It is the straight-to-your-heart performance."
Beethoven Cello Sonatas Nos. 1-5 / Rostropovich, Richter
LVC | Hong Kong | 12/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There is simply no better performance of 69, audio or video. The transition in to the last movement is so dramatic, so exciting, taking your breathe away."
